City employees created a wellness committee dedicated to educate, encourage, and guide City of El Paso employees to adopt a lifestyle by promoting employee wellness opportunities. The creation of the Wellness Champions is in response to the City of El Paso Resolution passed on Jan 6, 2011 by City Council. This resolution included the enhancement of an employee wellness program and policies to emphasize nutrition, physical activity and safety among city employees.
