Prevention and Wellness Resources for Leaders

Good health is good for business

Either the video service is temporarily unavailable or the requested video could not be retrieved. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Health promotion promises universal benefits for employers, community leaders and program planners alike. Besides enhancing overall quality of life, good health is good for business; a recent review of 73 published studies found that health promotion programs represent a $1 to $3.50 cost-to-savings ratio. AARP offers a variety of tools, resources and programs to help you realize the health promotion's benefits today.

Workplace Health Promotion Tool Kit

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and AARP have collaborated to create a Web-based tool designed to support employers in a coordinated, systematic and comprehensive approach to initiating and enhancing workplace health promotion activities.

Workforce health promotion efforts increase employee productivity, reduce absenteeism and protect an organization's bottom line. The tool kit provides a step-by-step process to assess, plan and execute activities to promote employees' health and create a healthy work environment.

CDC/AARP/AMA Preventive Services Report

In November 2009, the CDC, AARP and the American Medical Association (AMA) released "Promoting Preventive Services for Adults 50-64: Community and Clinical Partnerships," a landmark report highlighting an opportunity to broaden the use of potentially life-saving preventive services among adults ages 50 to 64.

The report is available in a searchable, online format at CDC.gov/aging. It identifies a set of recommended preventive services, delineates successful strategies to promote and facilitate their delivery in community settings, and provides national and state-level data to monitor progress in ensuring these services reach this key population. Unique features are the inclusion of local data for 134 communities, printable reports and a hyperlinked resource list. This data can inform program planning, policy development and resource allocation.



Next: Enhance the use of clinical services among older adults. >>
