Obesity: An epidemic affecting the workplace

Chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, heart disease and pulmonary conditions continue to drive up health care costs. One of the major causes of these chronic diseases is obesity. Because of their increased risk of serious medical conditions, obese employees are putting employers in the position of having to manage increased medical costs, productivity losses, absenteeism and disability claims. The good news is that you can help obese employees lose weight, reduce their risk factors for chronic disease, and lead happier, more productive lives by introducing the support of ProHealth Care's weight management services.

This medically supervised weight management service takes into account the employee's unique medical, behavioral, nutritional and physical needs to customize a weight loss approach.

Please note that this program can be customized to meet the needs of the company and what it wants to offer its employees.
