NACDD's Work@Health Program

Work @ Health logo markThe Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Division of Population Health (DPH) funds NACDD to utilize CDC workplace health tools and resources, specifically the Work@Health program, to complement, amplify, and expand state-based efforts to engage employers in building effective, comprehensive, evidence-based workplace health programs.

Work@Health is an evidence-based program that trains employers to develop and implement health promotion strategies to reduce chronic disease and injury risk and improve productivity in the workplace. Work@Health also certifies Train-the-Trainers and Master Trainers to deliver the Work@Health curriculum and technical assistance to employers.

Goals of Work@Health:

  • Increase employers’ level of knowledge and awareness of workplace health program concepts and principles
  • Increase the number of evidence-based workplace health programs, policies, and practices in place at participating employers’ worksites
  • Promote peer-to-peer community-based employer cooperation and mentoring

Benefits to trainers:

  • Increased knowledge of comprehensive worksite health programming
  • Enhanced capacity and skills to deliver trainings
  • Opportunities to leverage existing chronic disease programs and expertise within the worksite
  • Access to technical assistance from NACDD and CDC, ongoing professional development, and a cadre of trainers for peer-to-peer support

Work@Health is a program of the Center for Advancing Healthy Communities.
