Jeanne was a long standing Montana Worksite Health Promotion Coalition member who was taken from us much too soon. She was admired and respected by the coalition for her contribution and expertise in worksite health promotion. Jeanne was a joy to work with, always professional and considerate of others. She will be missed by the wellness community.

Welcome to the Montana Worksite Health Promotion Coalition's (MWHPC) Website!

Worksite health promotion has been proven to have a substantial impact on health care costs, absenteeism, workers compensation costs, and productivity. Our web site is designed to provide resources, encouragement, and a standard of excellence for those interested in working with us to promote healthy worksites in Montana.
