Coffee Break Physicals

Workplace Medical Check-ups
are Sound Investments

Loyola University Health System offers employers an effective way to lower ‘presentism’ occurring when employees come to work with undertreated or possibly unrecognized medical diagnosis. One way businesses can respond is offering employees short 15 minutes ‘coffee break’ physicals, including screening tests and symptom surveys.

‘Lunch and learn’ wellness sessions about relevant health topics help empower employees to take more control over their health. Reported in Newswise, such workplace health promotion approaches help protect productivity and contain health-care costs.
