Wobble for Wellness – Join the Movement!

Piedmont Health Service's 'Wobblers.'

Piedmont Health Services’ ‘Wobblers.’

Piedmont Health Services is inviting all 41 Community Health Centers, as well as, the North Carolina Community Health Center Association (NCCHCA) to participate in a movement, literally!

North Carolina Medical Society Benefit Plan (NCMS Plan) client, Piedmont Health Services (PHS) is constantly finding new opportunities for employees to engage and lead a healthier lifestyle. The PHS Wellness Team believes being healthy is a choice, and the more opportunities employees have to become healthier, the more likely they will adopt a healthier lifestyle.

In keeping with its wellness theme of “Mind, Body and Spirit”, on Friday, Aug. 4, PHS officially kicked off its wellness initiative at the Administrative Offices with the “Wobble” line dance.  Members of the administrative team and other staff wobbled in conjunction with the Tom Joyner Morning Show (TJMS). The show plays the wobble at the top of the 8 a.m. hour every Friday. Events like this have many positive results:

  • studies have shown direct health benefits of doing line dances like the “Wobble;”
  • the sense of well-being and camaraderie participants have with one another also positively impacts health; and,
  • TJMS is nationally syndicated in 132 markets across the country and Mr. Joyner gave Piedmont Health several “shout-outs” both before and as the Wobble played. Moreover, he lauded the company for using this opportunity to promote wellness.

On Friday, Oct. 20, PHS will Wobble once again since it was so much fun! It promoted movement, comradery and inspiration! Please join us. What better way to let your patients know that you care about the health of your staff? And, you may get to hear the name of your community health center shouted out during the TJMS broadcast.

If you have questions about how PHS has enhanced their culture of wellness by introducing the Wobble, please contact Rosalyn Freeman, Director of Human Resource at Piedmont Health Service at Freemanr@piedmonthealth.org
