Health Briefs Features the Arkansas Healthy Employee Lifestyle Program
Date:5/4/2013

Coral Springs, FL (PRWEB) May 04, 2013

The producers of Health Briefs with Terry Bradshaw are pleased to announce the Arkansas Healthy Employee Lifestyle Program will be featured in an upcoming segment on "Optimizing Workplace Productivity through Effective Wellness Solutions" as part of the show's Business of Healthcare series.

Despite the fact that the United States is home to world class medical centers, America’s health continues to decline in a number of areas. According to United Health Foundation's 2012 America's Health Rankings report, a quarter of U.S. adults take at least four prescriptions regularly. About 28% of American adults are obese, 9.5% have diabetes, 31% have high blood pressure, and 26% are mostly sedentary.

The State of Arkansas is working to improve these statistics. Through Act 724, passed by the Arkansas legislature in 2005, the Arkansas Department of Health and the Department of Human Services have launched the Arkansas Healthy Employee Lifestyle Program (AHELP) to help state employees adopt healthy lifestyles. AHELP follows a behavior change model, designed to increase healthy behaviors including: eating fruits and vegetables, engaging in regular physical activity, obtaining age-appropriate health screenings, and avoiding or quitting the use of all tobacco products.

"We strive to find current stories that have viewers' best interests in mind, and we found just that with the Arkansas Healthy Employee Lifestyle Program,” said Paul Scott, Executive Producer of Health Briefs.

To help change the health of Arkansas state employees, the bill provides an incentive. Those who participate in AHELP, using a web-based point tracking system for healthy behaviors, can earn up to three days of leave per 52 weeks.
