Reward for Wellness up for global health award

Posted 12/12/11

PROVIDENCE – Rhode Island’s Rewards for Wellness program has been named one of six finalists for an International Health Promotion Award.

The award honors programs around the globe that promote overall health and mitigation of disease in the workplace.

Rewards for Wellness promotes employee health through activities that contribute to a positive lifestyle. These activities include smoking-cessation programs, health-coaching programs and physical-activity challenges, including ShapeUp Rhode Island and Weight Watchers.

According to a news release, the Rewards for Wellness program works under the premise that promoting a healthy lifestyle leads to preventive health strategies and an increased probability that dangerous health conditions are discovered early. Employees who make an effort to better their overall health are awarded co-share credits for their commitment.

Other finalists for the International Health Promotion Award include Lesotho, Africa’s Alliance to Fight AIDS; Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport’s LiveWell Program; the United Kingdom’s People with Autistic Spectrum Condition Making a World of Difference; and Brazil’s Telecare to Remote Areas.

The award is co-sponsored by URAC – an independent, nonprofit organization in Washington, D.C., which promotes quality health care – and the Care Continuum Alliance. •
