The Dawson County Board of Commissioners recently received a grant designed to improve employee health and wellness. Dawson County is one of 40 members to receive the health promotion and wellness grant awarded by Georgia's county association, ACCG, based on its commitment to employee health and demonstrated collaboration with other community groups and organizations engaged in health promotion. "A successful wellness program is designed to encourage healthy lifestyles, which helps to control health care costs and contribute to a happier, more productive workforce," said Douglas County Commissioner and ACCG President Michael Mulcare.
