  • Build, nurture, and drive engagement through a Wellness Champion Network across key client locations
  • Support Virgin Pulse platform enrollment and ongoing engagement to associated solutions, resources, and partners
  • Work with our team of Health & Wellbeing Specialists to drive localized health engagement and awareness through educational opportunities and creative programming including, but not limited to, seminars, webinars, department presentations, and stop-by-tables
