More than 150 million adults in the US are overweight or obese. The number of Americans with diabetes has increased 44 percent in the last 10 years to 36.4 million in 2008, according to the Center for Disease Control.
How does that affect America’s workplace? Studies show that overweight and unhealthy employees have lower productivity, higher absenteeism and higher health care costs. In addition, medical benefits can cost up to 52% more on average for an overweight employee.
In an effort to help South Florida employers manage soaring health insurance premiums, Gabi Rose has launched a new Corporate Wellness Program designed to assist employees in achieving and maintaining healthier weights and lifestyles.
The program features customized weight loss solutions tailored to each patient’s individual goals. On-site weight management, professional fitness training, medication when necessary, counseling in behavior modification and lifestyle changes and a low-calorie diet of shakes and nutritional protein bars, are all available at a special group discount.
In addition to being experts in the field of obesity and weight management, our physician is qualified in the diagnosis and treatment of diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, high cholesterol and many other weight-related disorders. We are uniquely qualified to help employees successfully control their weight and manage their health.
