An Employer Resource Fair was held in mid-June for employers along the MS Gulf Coast. The event was organized by The Mississippi Business Group on Health in partnership with The National Diabetes & Obesity Research Institute at Tradition and the Mississippi State Department of Health. More than 40 employers and exhibitors participated in the Resource Fair.
Attendees gained valuable information on a wide array of services that are available to support and help coastal employers better manage the health of their employees. Ed Hagar (of Ingalls Shipbuilding and President of the Board of the MSBGH) welcomed attendees to the fair. Given the success of this event, organizers will host another Resource Fair in 2020. Details and registration information will be available in early 2020.
