Sally Hershey coordinates the Erie County Wellness Health Incentive Program (WHIP), which offers individual health assessments, screenings, and immunizations for all Erie County staff at 12 locations throughout the county. The WHIP program is an evidence-based strategy to improve employee health and wellness. According to Sally “employees like the option to come in and have free assessments done and they are glad to get the results right away. Participants love that I go to the individual offices where they work.” The WHIP program has improved employee health, productivity, and decreased long-term medical costs.
