City of Hiram Awarded Wellness Grant 2nd Year in a Row!

"The City of Hiram is excited to announce that we have been selected by the Georgia Municipal Association (GMA) to receive for the second year the Employee Health & Wellbeing Incentive Grant designed to enhance the health and wellbeing of City of Hiram’s employees and their families.
Awards are made to members of the GMA GMEBS Life and Health Insurance Fund, underwritten by Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, based on their commitment to employee health and demonstrated collaboration with other community groups and organizations engaged in health promotion.
As part of the grant process, the City of Hiram has designated Kathie Stancil and Jennifer Prater as their Health Promotion Champions to develop a workplace health promotion action plan and to attend Local Government Risk Management Services Health Promotion Champion Training workshop.
Workplace wellbeing programs have a demonstrated track record of improving employee health and quality of life while reducing medical claims and improving work place morale. GMA offers wellbeing services to all member cities through LGRMS, a not-for-profit agency operated jointly with the Association County Commissioners of Georgia.
Representing LGRMS tonight to present to the City of Hiram their awarded grant for 2024 for $3,000.00 is Paige Rinehart, the Health Promotion Services Field Representative with LGRMS Risk Control. Accepting on behalf of the employees of the City of Hiram tonight is Kathie Stancil and Jennifer Prater. The City of Hiram is honored to be selected again for this grant and are looking forward to our first annual Health Fair that will be held on Wednesday, October 11th in the newly added parking lot here at City Hall from 10:00am till 3:00pm." - Mayor Frank Moran
