About us

The Healthy Worksite Summit is a collaborative effort by a group of non-profit organizations known as the Summit partners and hosts. Formerly known as the Evergreen Everwell Conference, the Healthy Worksite Summit has been offered annually since 1987. The first conference was a project of the Governor’s Council for Physical Fitness, Health and Sports. When the Governor’s Council was disbanded, the conference was continued by a group of statewide non-profit organizations. Though the partners have changed over the years, the Summit continues.
