Jason Horay, health promotion coordinator for the NCMS Employee Benefit Plan, is one of 60 professionals nationwide to be selected to become a certified Work@Health Trainer, a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) sponsored employer health promotion program launched last year. With this training, Jason will acquire even more knowledge and skills needed to deliver comprehensive workplace health training to NCMS Plan practices and also receive CDC funding to support the effort.
Acceptance into the train-the-trainer program is limited given that individuals must demonstrate experience with workplace wellness programs and also have sponsorship from state or local health departments, business collations, community-based health organizations or non-profit organizations. Individuals also have to have previously demonstrated knowledge of the program’s curriculum, completed the Work@Health program and have at least one year of experience in a leadership role implementing health programs.
Jason was nominated by the North Carolina Department of Health and traveled to Atlanta, GA, on May 8 to attend the training lab. Congratulations to Jason on being accepted into this training program and the value it will add to the NCMS Plan and our client practices.
