A new study from the state Health Department shows 73-percent of employers participating in the Statewide Health Improvement Partnership, or SHIP, reported positive changes in healthy eating among their employees.

“What our program does is it creates the environment and lays the foundation, and makes it easier for people to be healthy in the workplace.”

The state Health Department’s Kim Edelman says the study evaluated the impact of workplace wellness efforts–including programs to support breastfeeding mothers and help employees quit smoking.
