SESSION HAS FILLED TO CAPACITY

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is placing new emphasis on the value of wellness for both employees and employers.  The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has awarded EANJ a grant to develop a comprehensive online resource for employers who want to implement workforce wellness and engagement programs. EANJ also plans to offer seminars and training throughout the year at member locations. This general membership meeting will introduce members to the project and provide an overview of programs and services that will be available.

Something to think about before the meeting-

Gallup estimates that 450 million days of work a year are missed because of health problems, resulting in an estimated cost of $153 billion in lost productivity. Statistically, even if there are only 50 employees within a company:

 

•    30 sit all day to do their work,
•    25 experience moderate to severe stress,
•    17 are overweight by 20% or more,
•    12 smoke,
•    12 suffer from some form of cardiovascular or other diseases,
•    25 have high cholesterol (over 200 mg/dl),
•    8 take a prescription drug for depression, anxiety or other mental disorder,
•    5 are heavy drinkers,
•    5 have high blood pressure,
•    3 are diagnosed with diabetes,
•    5 use marijuana, and
•    1 uses cocaine
