Thank you for allowing me to be a part of Sharpsburg’s 2nd Annual Community Wellness Day. I am still telling my colleagues about the great experience that I had this weekend. It was very well organized and I look forward to being a part of it next year.
We, at the EPA, are in the early stages of planning a Children’s Conference in October. If your time permits we would like for you to be a part of the planning/advisory committee. Our first meeting will be on………………We hope you can participate.
Feel free to contact me for other events. Thanks again.
To: Dr. Matthew Davis,
I would like to thank you on behalf of Georgia Power Transmission Department and my Safety Committee. The resources you have provided in the area of healthy living has left a lasting impression on our work force to work more safe and most importantly emphasizing the importance of spending time with our families Family is the most important thing in your life and at Georgia Power we strive every day to go home to our families the same way we came to work. Our families are counting on us.
As a Safety Advisor for Transmission, our work environment has many challenges. We work in many different conditions with varied job tasks, physical demands, weather, time of day, shift work, and differing levels of safety risks. It is important that every employee take a vested interest in their personal health and wellness. Our work force is aging and with that comes more risk for injury and lifestyle challenges that contribute to chronic health conditions. We look forward to working with you on ongoing projects to improve the health and safety of our employees. Our jobs also require a great deal of traveling on the road, eating out, and staying in motels. The tools and tips that employees can glean from your future presentations will be invaluable. We also are looking forward to following up with you on your offer to come in and observing some of our work groups to gain in incorporate a plan that emphasizes the importance of nutrition and ergonomics.

May God continue to bless your practice and your new marriage!

Dr. Matthew has become one of the leading health and wellness advocates and educators in the South Metro Area. He believes the strength of a community depends on the health of its residents. He contributes countless hours to the education and promotion of health and wellness. As a volunteer doctor for the Foundation for Wellness Education, hundreds of area residents are educated annually on the healing power of the body and overall benefits of healthy lifestyle choices. He was named the official local representative for the Foundation of Wellness Education for the community of South Metro Area. The Foundation for Wellness Education (FWE) is a non-profit organization dedicated to educating the public about health and wellness issues. Through educational initiatives they provide wellness information to local communities by offering a variety of free programs to local civic groups and organizations, clubs, churches, businesses, and schools. The programs are delivered through a national network of volunteer doctors who lend their expertise to teach timely health related topics such as how the body works, family wellness, health for children, stress management, nutrition and workplace safety.
Since the FWE’s inception they have educated thousands of individuals nationwide about the amazing benefits of living a healthier lifestyle. “That’s what appealed to me most about this project,” said Dr. Matthew Davis. “The FWE believes that every individual should lead a life of wellness but unfortunately most people do not fully understand what true wellness is, or the steps to make living an empowered life a reality. As a volunteer doctor I’m excited to lend my expertise to teach life-changing wellness principles in my own community.”
In their work across the country the FWE has found the topic of workplace wellness to be of special interest to businesses both large and small. As the economy and health care continue to be at the forefront of concerns faced by Americans, many employers have come to realize the bottom-line impact of fostering wellness within their workforces. Employers have been able to utilize the free programs provided by the FWE to contain health care costs, curb absenteeism and boost productivity, all essential in a competitive business world and difficult economic times. Local volunteer doctors view the work they do with local businesses an important way they can support the economy in their communities.
The workplace wellness programs provided by the FWE include topics such as ergonomics and workplace safety, as well as condition specific workshops on subjects like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, back injuries and more. In addition the local volunteers offer a variety of options for employee wellness screenings and health fairs. Regardless of the size or complexity of a workplace wellness program, the FWE can easily dovetail their initiative to fit with the company’s objectives.
