As new health science continues to emerge, it’s imperative that we as wellness professionals allow our ideas and efforts to shift and change along with it. Today’s guest, Melanie Cumbee, has learned to embrace these changes with open arms throughout her 25 years in the wellness industry - encouraging moves away from biometrics and premium incentives toward an employee-centered wellness model that has caught the attention of WELCOA. For the last 11 years, Melanie has led and developed the Good Life employee wellness program for MemorialCare Health Systems, which boasts an inspiring 75% participation among their 11,000 employees. Her passion for creating cultures that inspire and empower others to embrace their personal path to wellbeing, along with her excitement and willingness to implement emerging science into her programs, resulted in Melanie receiving the honor of being named WELCOA’s 2019 Top Health Promotion Professional in the US. In today’s podcast, Melanie shares her journey as a wellness professional and how she got her start. She explores some strategies she’s used to encourage employees to prioritize self-care as well as her experiences partnering with other departments in order to enhance and expand a wellness program.
