Do you know your numbers?
In the United States today, roughly 1 in 3 adults has high blood pressure. Most people can't feel the symptoms of high blood pressure, so it is often known as the "silent killer." Uncontrolled blood pressure can progress into strokes and heart attacks, but also contributes to high medical costs. High blood pressure is often linked to obesity, poor dietary habits, and smoking. The good news is that lifestyle changes can help decrease high blood pressure.
One of the best ways to catch high blood pressure is through a health screening. Health screenings are an excellent tool to help your employees "know their numbers" and inspire them to make healthy changes in their lives. Wegmans can work with your employees to conduct a health screening and provide incentives for participation.
The Wegmans Pharmacy Business Partnership Program offers a variety of programs for employers to help keep employees healthy.
