Offering ways for employees to live a healthy lifestyle was the main topic of Wednesday's meeting with remarks given by Pauline Ferrante of New York City Office of Health and Mental Hygiene.

Ms. Ferrante discussed ideas and asked questions with respect to employing a healthy workforce. Bringing in healthy food for lunch, offering exercise classes during lunch hours, or installing walking stations where both exercise and work can be performed at the same time, were the types of suggestions offered to improve the overall health of employees. Oftentimes, health insurance companies offer wellness programs for their insured individuals.

The New York City Office of Health and Mental Hygiene is divided into a variety of divisions including Mental Health and a Drug\Alcohol Prevention.
