Prevention through healthy communities and companies

“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Benjamin Franklin was on the cutting edge of wellness programming even in the 1700′s. He knew then that prevention is the best savings plan. And.. not just monetary savings, but also life saving. I had the pleasure of sitting in on the San Diego North Chamber Health Committee planning meeting in August…and they too, get it. Prevention through healthy communities and companies is the way to go. Did you know that for every $1 spent on workplace wellness, employers can save $6.00. A 6 to 1 ROI. Gotta love that! And the same goes for us as individuals. Invest a little in prevention and save big time in the long run. Better quality of life, longevity, reduced health care costs etc… And.. I’m sure you’ve already guessed it… the best prevention is MOVEMENT. Just move people. Please move. Get thy body in motion. Need help knowing the best way to move
