“According to America’s Health Rankings, Nevada ranked 42nd in the nation in 2010.” A recent report by the Trust for America’s Health stated 24.5% of Nevadans are obese and if Nevada continues on this trend, by 2030 49.6% of Nevadans will be obese. If Nevada reduces its average adult Body Mass Index by 5% by 2030, Nevada could potentially save $5,921,000,000 in total health care costs annually1.
We challenge employers and all Nevadans to be part of the Nevada Wellness Movement and climb to the mountain tops for better health. This project strives to work with communities, schools, employers, and healthcare providers to make changes that will make it easier for Nevadans to make healthy choices in their daily lives. Improving work environments by implementing worksite wellness programs is a key component to better the health of Nevadans. This website provides information to businesses, schools, and communities on ways to promote wellness and health.
