is easily accessible that features publications by the American Heart Association, American Cancer Society, American Dietetic Association, and other recognized health authorities.

3) Provide health insurance options that emphasize preventive care. These can include provisions for periodic physical exams and lab tests, mammograms, colon exams, and access to educational and support programs (smoking cessation, weight loss, exercise options, etc).

4) Sponsor health fairs, special health weeks and months (January for exercise, February for heart health, etc) when posters and special education opportunities are provided (e.g., brown bag lunches with speakers).

5) Create an expectation of wellness among employees and reward them for their participation and health improvement. Not only should employers provide the various benefits, programs and onsite health promotional activities, they should create an environment in which employees are expected to participate and be proactive about improving their health.

"Without question, everyone, including employers, must focus more attention on prevention, and not simply treating illnesses when they occur," said Dr. Lyles. "Furthermore, the success of any prevention or health awareness program requires that it start at the top. Corporate benefit and human resource managers should help ensure that their senior management is engaged and committed to the effort for it to be successful."
