Institute on the Costs and Health Effects of Obesity, National Business Group on Health

The National Business Group on Health in 2003 launched the Institute on the Costs and Health Effects of Obesity to tackle one of the nation’s most serious and preventable health problems. The Institute has already produced important tools to estimate the cost of obesity to employers, initiate employee communication on healthy weight, and design employer-sponsored wellness programs that meet HIPAA requirements. Comprised of large employer members, the Institute aims to reverse the alarming trend of increasing overweight and obesity that is damaging the health and productivity of our workforce and burdening corporate America with excessive—and avoidable—medical and disability costs.
