In America today, over sixty-six percent of the population is either overweight or obese. Nearly 80 percent of obese adults have diabetes, coronary artery disease, high cholesterol levels, high blood pressure, gallbladder disease, or osteoarthritis. About 40 percent of obese Americans have two or more of these conditions. For employers, the cost of obesity entails higher medical claims expenses for obesity and its accompanying chronic conditions, increases in short- and long-term disability expenses, increased absenteeism, and lower productivity. While this news is grim, there are efforts being made in our community to fight this epidemic. Join us for this session on how to proactively manage obesity in your workplace. Learn strategies that can help your employees and their family members either avoid or reduce their obesity risks.

What will you learn?

  • • Updated approached to manage obesity in the workplace
  • • Best Practices and shared successes
  • • Introduce Novo Nordisk Works
 

Who should participate?
Any Human Resources Professional, particularly those responsible for the company’s health benefit plans, health plan brokers and consultants, and financial officers responsible for benefit decisions.
