The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service workshop, Building a Healthy Workplace: Research Meets Practice, lasts from 9:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. at the Great Wolf Lodge, 100 Great Wolf Drive in Grapevine.

Dr. Ninfa Peña-Purcell, assistant professor and AgriLife Extension family and community health specialist in College Station, will review methods for improving employee health and measuring results.
