Event Details

Join us on April 3rd and learn how to "Bridge the Gap!"

NOTICE: Venue Change: We're now at 200 SW Market (tall black building)

Presentation Overview

Review and shed new light on how comorbid conditions are impacting injured workers and increasing the severity of their claims, and why it's crucial to have your safety people leverage your wellness program!

Learn new innovative Risk Management techniques that bridge the gap between HR, wellness, and workers’ compensation within an organization. 

Learn the importance of predictive analytic tools to pinpoint health risks in the employee population, uncover modifiable health risks and assign appropriate interventions to positively impact the lives of the workers – and costs on both medical and workers compensation premiums. 

We look forward to helping you "bridge the gap" between your safety and wellness programs!

Teresa Pacelli's Bio

Teresa Pacelli, CIC, AIC, graduated from Lewis & Clark College in Portland, OR with a degree in Communications and Business and immediately entered the insurance industry as a multi-line claims examiner for Aetna Life and Casuality. She holds both the CIC and AIC designations and is currently working on her CRM. Teresa specializes in Workers' Compensation, and has recently been added to the national faculty of The National Alliance as a CIC instructor.

She also started her own insurance education consulting business called Pure Enthusiasm, a company designed for the development and training of insurance professionals. Teresa travels all over the United States providing motivation and education to individuals who are new and inexperienced in the insurance industry. "Pure Enthusiasm" is a perfect description of Teresa's style!


The WWN Mission:

Together we will inspire the evolution of healthier worksites & communities.

As employers continue incorporating wellness programs within their companies, often the responsibility is left to internal staff, who could benefit from a collaborative and local support group. That's why the Worksite Wellness Network (WWN) was formed!

In a setting designed to alleviate judgment and solicitation, you can openly reveal your hurdles, learn new strategies, including relevant research and share your successes.

Come join us on Thursday, April 4th, at 9:00am at the downtown Regence Building.

*Parking information is provided once you register.
