Have a lunch and learn to review conditions or behaviors that increase employees chances of getting a certain disease. Here are some points to discuss:
- The risk factors for coronary heart disease which can be treated or controlled
- The more risk factors, the greater your risk of developing coronary heart disease.
- The higher your level of each risk factor, the greater your risk of developing coronary heart disease.
Review risk factors:
- Men 45 years or older
- Women 60 years or older
- Family history of heart disease
Review Controllable Risk Factors
- Blood Pressure
- Cholesterol Levels
- Activity Level
- Diabetes Control
Use a black board, start an open discussion and create ideas on how to reasonably address each one of these issues http://www.americanheart.org, then reward the group with delicious smoothies or fruit salad. Enjoy!
