The event celebrated local businesses who have demonstrated a commitment to improving Rhode Islanders' overall health through innovative wellness programs as companies and individuals. 

"We commend Pet Food Experts for investing in wellness programming and creating a stronger workforce," said Kim Keck, president and CEO of BCBSRI. "Employees who are encouraged to take charge of their own health and wellness feel empowered and valued. Working as a team to help employees get healthy and stay healthy translates to a more committed, more engaged workforce, and that is a true sign of success."
