“On the final day of the award application for WELCOA’s Top Health Promotion Professionals, I applied. I was one of over 200 applicants and did not think anything would come of it. Five months later, I was named the #1 Health Promotion Professional in the U.S. After giving an acceptance speech at their conference that spring, I wrote on the last page of my journal, “I will speak at WELCOA’s Summit next year.” I stored the journal in my nightstand. Four months later, I received a phone call from WELCOA, asking me to speak at their conference the following year. In the months that followed, people started reaching out to me to do podcast interviews, and last year, some of my stories and words were quoted in three different books.”
“Dr. Lynise Anderson, dean of student affairs and campus wellness, was named the national Top Health Promotion Professional by the Wellness Council of America (WELCOA) 2016-17 DISH Awards. Dr. Anderson’s entry celebrated the great work she is doing in the field of health promotion and raised the bar for those practitioners who are still developing their skills setting career goals.”
The Seven Benchmarks training exceeded my expectations. It provided valuable insights and useful information that I can use immediately to increase program effectiveness.
I absolutely love WELCOA certification courses! They are very informative, timely and provide useful subject matter. The additional resources are great tools to have on hand.
I cannot tell you enough how all of you at WELCOA are such valuable assets. If you are not a big company and don’t have large budgets, you really need great resources like WELCOA.
