ta, and monitor progress.  Health care organizations can seamlessly integrate this technology into existing prevention and wellness programs to improve health risk assessment, develop outcomes-based incentives, and demonstrate the effectiveness of their interventions.

Known nationwide for his commitment to prevention and wellness initiatives, Thompson has a track record for health care business acumen and has been closely involved with Stayhealthy since 2008.  Thompson was one of the first national leaders to speak out about the need to focus on prevention and wellness as part of a national debate when he launched his Healthy Lifestyles & Disease Prevention campaign as HHS Secretary in 2004.

"I hope to draw on my experience in numerous areas of the healthcare industry to help Stayhealthy become a global leader in measuring and improving personal health – which I believe is critical in the fight against chronic disease and obesity," said Thompson.  "Stayhealthy has a very bright future and I am looking forward to working with the organization's outstanding executive leadership team to help improve the health status of people worldwide."

Edward P. Bliss, who has served as Chairman since 2008, will continue to serve on the Board of Directors. Stayhealthy also announced the return of one of its founding directors, John P. Demoleas, to the Board of Directors.  Mr. Demoleas is Vice President of Development and External Affairs at Staten Island University Hospital.  Demoleas has a track record of successful development, management, and expansion of health care enterprises and hospital and university foundations over the past 30 years.  

"John Demoleas was a founding member of Stayhealthy and has contributed greatly over the years to the company's original vision, which was formulated 15 years ago and is now coming to fruition as Americans begin to benefit from Stayhealthy technologies," said Collins.
