Now's the Time to Expand Wellness Programs to Family Members

If you have been debating whether or not to expand your wellness program to family members, consider this -- the World Health Organization warns there will be 70 million obese children globally by 2025. As employers, we know all too well the impact of obesity on health status and the link to high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, diabetes and other conditions. Now is the time to implement programs to encourage healthy eating habits and physical activity for the entire family. Everyone wins!
