HealthLead™ AccreditationHealthLead Accreditation
HealthLead™ is a game-changing initiative of US Healthiest. HealthLead recognizes employers for meeting recognized standards to promote health and well-being among their employees. It is designed to provide a competitive edge to organizations; both in the eyes of the financial community and in attracting prospective employees as a "best place" to work.
Healthy CommunitiesAdvertising and Childhood Obesity
The National Bureau of Economic Research projects that a ban on advertisements of fast-food on television, “...would reduce the number of overweight children aged 3-11 in a fixed population by 18 percent and would reduce the number of overweight adolescents aged 12-18 by 14%.”
We understand that health is the key to not only physical, emotional, and intellectual well-being but also to economic strength. Our members are committed to making health and well-being a priority in industry and government, but also for individuals, families, and communities.
Achieving our goal requires a wide range of collective action across sectors. We will facilitate that action, engaging diverse perspectives from organizations and individuals to create a network of people, ideas, policies, and programs.
We are a non-partisan organization that facilitates partnerships between national and grassroots efforts, fosters innovative actions, and connects individuals to spark, a nationwide social movement to make the U.S. the healthiest nation in a healthier world.
