FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: (7/27/2016)
Santa Ana, CA, 7/25/2016 – Mobile Medical Examination Inc. “MedXM,” a national leader in the design and implementation of preventive care technology and in-home health risk assessments, announced today that it will hold Wellness Wednesday and donate meals to Feed America every last Wednesday of the month.
Effective wellness programs have been shown to:
- Reduce sick days by 28%
- Reduce health costs by 26%
- Reduce worker’s compensation and disability management claims by 30%
These statistics are the very reason MedXM has initiated a company wide program to raise health awareness. MedXM’s mission of education, prevention, and early detection is reinforced through its own employee wellness program. Together MedXM and Snacknation are working to improve the health of MedXM employees by providing healthy snacks the last Wednesday of each month.
Wellness Wednesday highlights the benefits of healthy choices, and for every SnackNation box MedXM receives, SnackNation donates 10 meals via Feeding America.
“We want to make a difference in the lives of our employees and in our community. Our Wellness Wednesday events will encourage employees to learn more about healthy snack options. The monthly event will also provide a time for employees to take a break and snack with their co-workers, improving employee engagement and satisfaction. By creating more awareness around healthy eating, we will save lives,” said Sy Zahedi, MedXM CEO.
MedXM’s first Wellness Wednesday event was held Wednesday, July 27th. MedXM will continue to work with SnackNation to improve employee wellness and feed America to help each organization’s mission of education, prevention, and early detection.
