Meet the employees who quit tobacco with Charlie's Fund

Since its founding three years ago, Charlie’s Fund at CoxHealth has been helping staff members break the tobacco habit. The fund offers a $1,000 incentive for participating employees who remain tobacco-free for a year.

In 2015, eight of our colleagues rose to the challenge and earned the incentive award. CoxHealth President and CEO Steve Edwards recognized the staff members during the monthly Department Head meeting at Cox South. The 2015 participants are:

Rhonda Shafer, Patient Access, Cox Branson
James Bosserman, Materials Management, Cox Branson
Lisa Potthoff, Ferrell-Duncan Clinic Neurology
Rozlyn McTeer, Trauma Services
Sabrina Wollweber, Physicians Billing
Stephanie Barnes, Oxford
Rick Boaz, Pre-Hospital Services
Tina Buffington, Oxford HealthCare (not pictured)

Please join us in congratulating them on their achievement!

Enrollment is underway now for employees who are working to be tobacco-free in 2016. Enrollment runs from January 18 – 28 for this year’s program that begins February 1. CoxHealth employees can visit the intranet to see a list of details on how to participate.
