At the Center for Workforce Health, we specialize in state-of-the-art online health improvement programs that cover a wide array of health topics and can serve a variety of purposes. The programs can be used as stand-alone interventions—and have been shown effective in this mode—or as companions to in-person and telephone coaching approaches, and they have been used for both health promotion and disease management. They are all science-based and developed under grants from the National Institutes of Health, and were tested in diverse workplaces as part of the development process. Below is a list of our online programs. For more detailed information about the program, simply click on the program name.
