About this talk

Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of death worldwide, taking an estimated 17.9 million lives every year. In the US, heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women across most racial and ethnic groups, causing approximately 655,000 deaths each year. Aside from the human cost, heart conditions cost the US approximately $219 billion each year in healthcare services, medicines and loss of productivity. For employers, the challenge is to offer sufficient healthcare benefits to protect all employees against the risks of heart disease while offering long-term support to those most at risk. For employees with chronic conditions like diabetes, the risk of developing heart disease is much greater. To develop a more inclusive working environment, employers need to prioritize the needs of those most at risk by employing support and management strategies that alleviate the costs of living with a chronic condition and protect against absenteeism. In Episode 1 of One Drop’s Original Series “The future of employee wellbeing: adapting benefits to the new normal,“ you’ll hear from benefit experts and clinical experts about how to start mitigating the risks of poor heart health in your company. Join the session to explore: - Understand the risks of heart disease and how they impact your bottom line - Discover cross-company tools and techniques to employ to help employees manage heart health - Explore support strategies you can offer employees with diabetes and other chronic conditions to help them better manage their conditions and protect them against heart disease - And more Speakers: - Jamillah Hoy-Rosas, Vice President - Clinical Operations, One Drop - Jaime Aholt, Sr Benefits Analyst & Well-Being Lead, Bayer Crop Science
