Train in Chicago to administer workplace health

See also

Training will be offered in Chicago for employers who are interested in administering health care programs at work. In February 2014, the Journal of the American Medical Association released an astounding statistic: more than two-thirds of U.S. adults are overweight or obese. In order to combat this growing problem, more and more companies are establishing workplace health care programs, as most Americans spend the majority of their days at the office.

The training will be offered by the Center’s of Disease Control and Prevention’s Work@Health program. The program gives businesses the opportunity to gain $5,000 and put the money towards establishing workplace health programs.

Program sessions will be held in Chicago on May 27 and May 28. During the sessions, employers will learn about different health care strategies that can be applied to the workplace. An entire program will not be developed at the sessions, but instead, certain health care skills will be developed in order to implement a program in the future.
