Frankfort Presentation of Worksite Assessment
|Date: Friday, May 30th, 2014||Return|
“Results of the Kentucky Worksite Assessment: Utilization of the CDC’s Health Scorecard” was presented on April 11, 2014 in Frankfort to the Kentucky Department for Public Health, including the Deputy Commissioner for Public Health, Dr. Connie White. The assessment was conducted to identify the number of comprehensive worksite health promotion programs in Kentucky and to determine the health needs of worksites in Kentucky. Dr. Cecilia Watkins, Dr. Grace Lartey, Dr. Gretchen Macy and Dr. Vijay Golla, who conducted the survey in 2013, revealed that few worksites in Kentucky have a worksite health promotion program and more businesses rely on health insurance to treat chronic diseases than health promotion programs or preventive services to reduce chronic diseases. Much work needs to be done, especially for small businesses, to help companies establish worksite health promotion programs.
