About North Dakota Worksite Wellness

The North Dakota Worksite Wellness initiative was launched in 2009 as a collaborative effort between Dakota Medical Foundation, Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota and the North Dakota Department of Health. The goal is to get more North Dakota businesses and organizations to offer and participate in worksite wellness programs.
