Fast friends: When entrepreneurs mingle

Workplace wellness and productivity were the focus of a meeting this past Wednesday, November 20, as the Charlottesville chapter of "Company of Friends," a group of professionals, participated in a forum led by health promotion expert George J. Pfeiffer of the WorkCare Group, Inc.

Although he's local, Pfeiffer is described as "an actual national guru" by employee Randolph Byrd. The meeting was sponsored by Adams & Garth and also Whole Foods.

From chiropractics to physical therapy, the panelists talked about health and wellness and guided Company of Friends members through quizzes and even mini-exercises. It was all designed to motivate and also promote wellness, combat stress, and achieve good health.

Company of Friends is affiliated with Fast Company, a magazine for professionals and entrepreneurs.
