The award recognizes the Town of Penfield for organizing an annual health fair which has served as a model for other local events. Penfield was selected from 18 area municipalities and organizations which are part of the Finger Lakes Municipal Health Insurance Trust.
The 2022 Penfield Employee Wellness Fair was held in June and featured 25 health and wellness vendors with roughly 150 people in attendance. The event also included biometric screenings for all interested employees.
“Our employee-led Wellness Committee works throughout the year to provide wellness programs and initiatives for our staff,” said Employee Wellness Committee Chair Laura Sliker. “The annual fair is our biggest event of the year, and we were honored to be recognized for our work on the event.”
