Chronic health problems...account for more than 75% of the nation's $2.7 trillion in annual spending for medical care.
-- Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

America is suffering from an epidemic of “Lifestyle Diseases” – inactivity, poor nutrition, excessive use of tobacco, and excessive use of alcohol. 75% of these chronic illnesses are preventable through simple lifestyle changes.

Corporations are turning to Wellness Programs to keep their employees healthy, happy, and productive.
