Theresa Islo, UW Health and Wellness program manager, talks about exciting features of this online bachelor’s degree.

Rising healthcare costs, changing regulations, and concerns about employee health and productivity are just a few reasons why more and more employers are looking to implement worksite wellness programs. By fostering healthier lifestyles and promoting the value of staying well, employers are learning that they can slow the pace of rising health insurance premiums and improve the attendance and productivity of their employees—particularly those with chronic conditions.

But to achieve this healthy ROI, they need qualified professionals with the training to build engaging and effective health and wellness programs that have a positive effect on the organization’s culture.
