Each month, Wood County UW-Extension, Health Department, Healthy People Wood County and Wisconsin Rapids Community Media collaborate to provide a Lunch & Learn to Wood County employees as well as the local community. Attendees are invited to bring their own lunch and join us for a brief presentation on important and relevant topics.
The presentations are recorded for community members to view online or to watch on Wisconsin Rapids Community Access. Showtimes are Tuesdays at 12:00 p.m or Thursdays at 7:00 p.m. The links to each presentation are provided below.
Wood County employees who participate in the Wellness program can also view the presentations and fill out a questionnaire through the ManageWell portal to earn their wellness points.
