Addressing Hypertension at Work: A Call to Action for Employers

Thursday, July 25, 2024 (1:00 PM - 2:00 PM) (CDT)


Register Today for the FREE July 25 Hypertension Control webinar. The 1-hour webinar will be hosted by HBCH and presented by CDC staff and consulting experts. Attendees will be provided links to key resources. Hypertension is a known risk factor for heart disease and stroke, and it is preventable and controllable. However, 1 in 3 working-age adults in the United States has hypertension, and direct costs for workers with hypertension are nearly 50% higher than for workers without hypertension. Yet, many employers have not implemented effective strategies that directly address blood pressure control and prevention. The webinar will provide tools to support building the business case for employer engagement in hypertension prevention and control: • Developing the Business Case for Hypertension Control • Claims Analysis Guide • Budget Impact Model • Comprehensive Benefit Design Guide for Hypertension • The Financial Benefits of Hypertension Control and Management Speakers • Michele Bildner, Project Manager, CDC Foundation Non-Infectious Disease Programs • Kyi-Sin Than, Senior Director, FTI Consulting, Center for Healthcare Economics and Policy • Neil Goldfarb, President and CEO, Greater Philadelphia Business Coalition on Health
