Workplace Health Assessment
The workplace health assessment tool provides companies with customized recommendations for improving the health of their workplace by maximizing the utilization of health care benefits, company policies, wellness oriented programs, communication and tracking efforts. This assessment process helps build a healthier work environment by using evidence-based strategies to control health care costs, increase employee productivity, improve morale and attract and retain employees.
It consists of a 60 question survey focusing on benefit design, written policy, in-office programming, tracking and communication and is conducted by American Cancer Society corporate partners staff. Companies then receive a customized, action-based report measuring the corporate health culture against national best practices and benchmarks surrounding five areas: tobacco control, cancer screening, healthy eating, physical activity and cancer care.
Colorectal Cancer Screening Awareness
Colorectal cancer is a major public health problem. It is the second leading cause of cancer death, and a cause of considerable suffering among more than 135,000 adults diagnosed with colorectal cancer each year. However, colorectal cancer can be detected early at a curable stage, and it can be prevented through the detection and removal of precancerous polyps.
The CEOs Against Cancer Greater Houston Chapter stand united in the belief that they can eliminate colorectal cancer as a major public health problem. We have screening technologies that work, the national capacity to apply these technologies, and effective local models for delivering the continuum of care in a more organized fashion. As such, our CEO companies will work to empower communities, patients, providers, community health centers, health systems, employers and others to embrace these models and develop the partnerships needed to deliver coordinated, quality colorectal cancer screening and follow up care that engages the patient and empowers them to complete needed care from screening through treatment and long-term follow-up.
