Wellness Program

Mind ~ Body ~ Wellness 

This program was implemented in January 1995 by the MPA Board of Directors. Through this program, MPA offers information and hands-on instruction towards leading healthier lives to the employees of our Members. The program is directed by Linda Cox who can be contacted at (415) 515-6017 or lcox@mpa-nc.com. The goal is to provide high-quality on-site programs to improve employees’ health and sense of well-being, while limiting the high cost of healthcare.

The Wellness Program was enhanced in Fiscal Year 2018-19 to include the addition of several services

  • Wellness Fair: The annual wellness fairs include Non-Fasting Total Cholesterol/HDL/Glucose Screenings, Blood Pressure Screenings, Osteoporosis Screenings, Fitness Testing, Body Composition Testing, Stretch Testing, and Chair Massages.
  • CPR, First Aid & AED Training: MPA annually provides member cities with a CPR, First Aid & AED training class.
  • Spring Walk-n-Lunch: The Spring Walk-n-Lunch is open to all employees who want to join their co-workers on a selected date for a noon-time walk. After the walk, MPA provides lunch to all who participate.
  • Chair Massage Day (spring and fall): MPA provides two chair massage days each year for the member cities' employees. MPA hosts a three-hour session of chair massage days.
  • Fitness Classes: MPA provides member cities with fitness days every year. Fitness classes are a great way for employees to learn new exercise techniques that encourage Mind-Body-Wellness.

FACT: Employees who lead healthy lifestyles, use less sick time and are generally happier, and more productive employees.
