“Healthy employees are the most important thing our state can give employers, both current and prospective businesses.”

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, certainly. Not to mention longer, healthier lives and bottom-line savings for employers and other organizations.To build healthier places, Prevention Partners focuses on the leading causes of chronic disease and early death: tobacco use, poor nutrition, physical inactivity, and obesity.
Our approach to prevention is designed to accelerate change by creating executive-level tools for businesses of all sorts (hospitals, corporations, state and municipal agencies, and professional services), schools, and health care facilities. We take evidence-based research and translate it for these real-world settings, helping to embed prevention in a fast-growing number of places where people work, learn, and provide care.
