The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently unveiled LEAN Works! (Leading Employees to Activity and Nutrition), a free web site designed to help businesses address obesity. CDC’s LEAN Works! can help employers calculate the cost of obesity for their organization and develop a tailored approach to help control these costs through nutrition and physical activity interventions.
Garry M. Lindsay, Managing Senior Fellow and Senior Program Officer at Partnership for Prevention, was a member of an Expert Panel on Worksite Obesity Prevention convened by CDC in 2006 and 2007 that provided initial input into the development of the Website.
