10:35 am – 11:35 am
Focusing on social relationships leads to participation in health improving behaviors via challenges and program participation. But the benefits of developing social relationships go far beyond the immediately visible improvements. Community and social context, one of the six social determinants of health, can be improved via worksite health promotion programs. This session will discuss ways to leverage worksite health promotion programs to foster social relationships, will feature wellness champion programs and the related outcomes, and will show how to use data to identify and target at-risk populations by social determinants of health. The goal of this session is increase awareness and foster communication about the next evolution of worksite health promotion programs, broadening our focus from the individual, to the individual’s community.
