Spread the Wellness Word

Employee Wellness Advisory Council (EWAC)

The Employee Wellness Advisory Council (EWAC) creates an environment that supports healthy lifestyles and offers opportunities for employees to optimize their health and well-being. EWAC members represent a variety of departments within the City of Houston. The Council acts on behalf of departments not represented and will seek input from those departments through regular communication. All departments have an opportunity to have representation on the Council as members. If you are interested in becoming a member of the Employee Wellness Advisory Council please complete the online application in the resources section.

Wellness Connection thanks you for volunteering to create a culture of health and wellness within the City. Your motivation and enthusiasm will help others in leading healthier lifestyles.

Would you like to become more involved with employee wellness for your department? Wellness Connection offers opportunities for employees to Spread the Wellness Word!

Wellness Ambassadors play a vital role in supporting the mission of Wellness Connection. Because of the unique bond between them and their coworkers, Ambassadors have an advantage in motivating their colleagues to achieve a healthier lifestyle. Time commitment for Wellness Ambassadors is very minimal, estimated at two hours per month and two informational meetings per year.
