Harvard Webcast: Health in the American Workplace: Are We Doing Enough?

Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health will host a free, live ForumHSPH.org webcast, Health in the American Workplace: Are We Doing Enough?,  Monday, July 11, 2016, noon-1pm ET. For good or for bad, jobs impact employees’ health. From stress levels, to eating habits, to worries about workplace violence and toxic exposures, people confront a variety of challenges on the job. This Forum event will draw on the findings of a just released poll about the workplace and health by NPR, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and Harvard Chan School. A panel of experts in workplace culture and public opinion will take on the concerns most expressed by employees – as well describe lessons learned from employers that cultivate healthy environments – to see if there are feasible measures to produce a more accessible, supportive, healthier workplace. Expert participants include Prof. John Quelch, professor of business administration, Harvard Business School, and professor in the Department of Health Policy and Management, Harvard Chan School; Marjorie Paloma, MPH, director and senior program officer at The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation; Prof. Glorian Sorensen, professor of social and behavioral sciences and principal investigator, Center for Work, Health and Wellbeing, Harvard Chan School; and Prof. Robert Blendon, professor of health policy and political analysis, Harvard Chan School and Harvard Kennedy School. The moderator will be Joe Neel, deputy senior supervising editor and a correspondent on the Science Desk, NPR.
