Don Weber Bio
Don Weber has more than 30 years of experience in designing and implementing creative health service programs for employers and employees alike. He was Founder and President of National Health Screenings, which provided health assessments and employee screening services. He then built HSNA, a pre-employment drug testing services provider which he later sold. Most recently, he founded Logistics Health Incorporated (LHI) in La Crosse, Wisconsin, which over the past 18 years, and under his leadership, has grown to become a recognized world-class leader in the field of military medical and dental readiness, and an employer of choice with a renowned employee wellness program. He has received numerous awards for both his military service as a Marine Corps Vietnam Combat Veteran and as a business leader, and he remains deeply committed to building communities where he lives and works, through employee and family health and wellness, job creation and community service.
Changing the Workplace Culture Around Caregiving is a topic of personal importance to Weber. Over two years ago he began to face a reality many adult children must navigate, of changing roles with a parent and becoming a caregiver in their family member’s final days. Don juggled an intense work schedule throughout the experience of caring for his mother, Rita, as she made the sacred journey. Their experience was documented in the PBS series about advance care planning, “Caring for Mom & Dad.” Don’s mother has since passed away. The experience solidified for him the responsibility employers have to support their employees throughout all stages of family life, including their journey into the role of caregiver. At its core, Weber recognizes, the experience of caregiving for family members and loved ones is a sacred part of the human experience, and when employers support their staff members throughout the transition into caregiving and beyond, it strengthens their business, their communities, and the families who live there.
