One of the many programs offered to Crouse employees through our Simply Well employee wellness initiative is Weight Watchers at Work. Besides its convenient location, you'll get the support of your co-workers and share in each other's success each day you're on the job!
Weight Watchers recognizes that food is only one part of the weight-loss equation. Activity, healthy habits, support and smart food choices are the keys that can lead to real, lasting success. And that's what being "simply well" is all about!
