Why is CHBC important to you?
The Charleston Healthy Business Challenge is important to me because I see it as a vital and constantly evolving opportunity to meet the needs of our community within the Lowcountry and beyond. Not only are we able to provide much-needed wellbeing support and resources to a wide variety of businesses and organizations, but more importantly, through CHBC, we are able to foster a community that meets businesses where they are and empowers them to make a true and lasting impact on their workforce and all the lives they touch. Simply put, CHBC is the skipping stone that creates a ripple effect of wellbeing at the organizational and individual level in the Lowcountry and beyond. It's a truly rewarding thing to be a part of.
