Do workplace wellness programs work? Usually not
The New York Times
Most news coverage of the new Kaiser Family Foundation annual survey on employer-sponsored health plans has focused on the fact that growth in premiums in 2013 was as low as it has ever been in the 16 years of the survey.

DIET & NUTRITION

But the risk drops substantially if those people get up and move around, even if they don’t formally exercise, two new studies found.
