Sponsored by: 21 Creative Wellness Program Promotional Strategies

21 Creative Wellness Program Promotional Strategies, a February 8, 2006 audio conference, will provide an inside look at the most effective strategies three different wellness professionals have used to boost participation and outcomes in their wellness programs.

Wellness programs are only as successful as the number of participants in the program. Getting individuals motivated to participate in programs is perhaps one of the biggest challenges that wellness professionals face.

During this 60-minute audio conference, your expert panel of speakers, William Baun, manager, human resources and wellness department at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Aaron Hardy, wellness coordinator with Washoe County School District, and Rebecca Kelly, wellness coordinator at American Cast Iron Pipe Company (ACIPCO) Health Services, will provide inside details on the creative wellness promotional strategies that they've used to spark interest and participation in their wellness programs.

3.) Lifestyle Incentives Rewards Programs Encourage Healthy Lifestyles

Changing healthcare trends, including movement from one-time treatment costs for acute conditions to blank checks for chronic care, challenge employers' ability to safeguard both employee health and financial viability. While dependent upon employee productivity for industrial progress, employers and health plans must maintain a bottom line. According to a 2003 report by the Partnership for Solutions, a research group at Johns Hopkins University, people with chronic conditions account for 88 percent of all prescriptions filled, 72 percent of all physician visits and 76 percent of all inpatient stays. These numbers do not appear to be decreasing.

4.) Legal Issues Affecting Your Wellness Program

The hot wellness topic in the mid-1980s was smoking restrictions and "smokers' rights." Nine states banned smoking in a variety of public buildings, the workplace, outdoor events, etc. Many bans were challenged in the court system.
