Fifteen years ago, one-tenth of the population in the Southeast was classified as obese. Today, about one-fourth is considered to be obese, and with more people living sedentary lifestyles, the number is quickly moving toward one-third. Carolinas HealthCare System (CHS) and the YMCA of Greater Charlotte have joined together to form Live WELL Carolinas! Corporate Health, which offers a package of workplace-based wellness programs for Charlotte-area businesses. The origins of the program stem from a partnership that began nearly 10 years ago, when the YMCA approached CHS to provide its Charlotte metro-area facilities with medical support such as wellness stations and nurses. It is up to each employer to determine what the health needs and goals are for its staff, and then a customized plan is developed.
