It identifies and discusses examples of the most intensively studied programs (such as Johnson and Johnsons Live for Life, and AT&Ts TLC), and considers the state of science for the four most frequently offered health-promotion program components: smoking cessation, weight control, exercise, and stress management.As is becoming increasingly evident, worksite health-promotion activities pose their own unique set of challenges -- challenges that are likely to have a significant impact on national health status and costs.
