The information included in this webinar is important. We know the drill – healthcare costs are crippling all of us. However, with the right approach to wellness and by implementing the right programs, we can have a significant impact!

Unfortunately, the standard, run-of-the-mill “Wellness Programs” are unable to accomplish this!

If you have questions or need help, download the vCard for Brian Sekula (below) and reach out. We are glad to help!

Why Wellness Fails

This online presentation is from one done on November 12, 2015 to the FENG – Sugar Land / Katy Group. We recorded the audio and then added the slides to it.

As the introductory slide states, there is one thing I want you to know after watching this presentation:

Wellness Fails at Controlling Medical Costs.

It fails for three reasons:

  • Sameness
  • Research???
  • Blame Game

I cover each of these during the presentation.

One-sentence conclusion

Wellness can produce positive results but executives and decision makers must do their due diligence in selecting the right vendor.

In responding to a question about supplements, I referred to the Dietary Supplement and Health Education Act of 1994.

During the Q&A, I referred to JAMA article published in September 2015. By adding an additional test to their screening (HbA1c) they concluded that more than 50% of the US adult population has some form of diabetes: diagnosed, undiagnosed or pre-diabetes. You can read more about this in our article: Your organization needs a type 2 diabetes strategy. Here’s why, or you can read this one: Type 2 Diabetes is Killing Your Company.
