Did you know that nearly nine out of ten adults may lack the skills needed to manage their health and prevent disease?
When it comes to health, ignorance isn’t bliss. Health education helps your employees understand their health and act on information to make good health decisions. Through education and awareness, your employees can connect the dots between their lifestyle choices and their health. Health education can positively affect employee behavior, improve health decisions, and ultimately lead to improved health outcomes.

“I had been feeling poorly for a while, making it difficult for me to do my job and spend time with my family. I went to the health center at work and my blood work showed I had diabetes, low iron, and high cholesterol.” – Lillie, Marathon Health patient, Wayne Farms employee, and winner of Healthy Like Me.

Health is what happens outside of the doctor’s office. From your first sip of coffee in the morning to your brushed teeth at bedtime – health happens all day long. In fact, healthcare determines only 11 percent of your overall health while social, economic, and environmental factors determine 50 percent of your overall health. As discussed in our recent white paper, where you live, work, and play factor into your overall health and the social determinants of health help clinicians develop a more complete health picture.

A simple question can launch significant behavior change, and ultimately, health improvement. By asking questions, rather than issuing orders, providers empower patients to take control of their health and develop new behaviors. But, to achieve Iasting health improvements, patients need support and resources to help them in their health journey. Health coaching provides the motivation, structure, and accountability to get them there.

“I went to the health center at work for my annual biometric screening and discovered I was in the risk category for cholesterol and prediabetes. My results from the center were a wake-up call. I am a single mother who had already survived breast cancer – I want to be in good shape so I can be around longer for my daughter. I did not want to jeopardize my health any longer and I knew I had the power to change.” – Carrie, Marathon Health patient, employee of Great-West Financial, and winner of Healthy Like Me.

“My divorce was difficult and I knew I needed to manage my stress. I wasn’t sleeping well, I was always thinking about the past or the future, and I had a lot of worries and anger. I couldn’t focus and I always felt exhausted. I wanted to lose the extra weight I had gained while pregnant but the thought of exercising or eating well was overwhelming.” – Barbara, Marathon Health patient, Tufts University employee, and winner of Healthy Like Me.

Have you ever smelled or tasted something that instantly transports you to a certain moment in your past? Our nutrition is baked in tradition and is the root of our cultures and customs. Whether we’re roasting a family recipe, eating a corn dog at the annual county fair, or delivering a casserole to a grieving friend, we use food to connect and honor moments in time. As a result, food can also be emotional and lead us to make poor nutritional choices.
