Preventing Tomorrow`s Health Problems Today

Today we face complex challenges that impact the health and well-being of our workers. These factors include faster paced work environments, mental health stressors, rising rates of obesity and related disease states – stemming from poor lifestyle, shifts in the age demographics of workforces and a rise in automation leading to sedentary jobs. These factors may predispose workers to becoming susceptible to long term disability, injury or illness. This webinar will guide viewers through these relevant challenges and provide insights on how they can mitigate these risks within their organization.

This presentation will highlight case studies and novel doctoral scientific research from a variety of industries. Dr. Wahl will illustrate the role of lifestyle intervention, injury prevention education and health assessments as an effective means of reducing the risk of illness and injury and their associated costs to organizations both financially and operationally. By employing simple strategies companies can, not only, improve the health of the worker but also the health of the company.
