    "Teaching Accountability for Personal & Family Health"
    Presenter: Shawna R. Dosser, BWI President & CEO"

    Who is responsible for your health? YOU ARE! Children depend on their parents, but when should they start relying on their own judgement and decisions? As a parent, are you teaching your kids the right things about health? Is it the responsibility of our government and schools to teach family health or the family's responsibility to teach and lead by example? These questions will be addressed in BWI's final webinar delivered by BWI President & CEO, Shawna Dosser. It has been Shawna's mission to help create basic tools for independent learning of personal health; teach personal accountability needed for true behavior change; and demonstrate easy-to-learn skills necessary for leading a healthy lifestyle.

    "An Authoritative Look at the ROI of Worksite Wellness Programming"
    Presenter: Larry Chapman, MPH, President, Chapman Institute"

    Do all worksite wellness programs produce a positive Return-on-Investment? Probably not. But a great deal of peer-reviewed scientific literature seems to make that claim. More recently a few vocal critics are challenging this traditional view. In this webinar learn what the literature says and doesn’t say about the economic return that can be expected from a worksite wellness program. Find out from a long time observer why this issue is as contentious as it is and why it is difficult for the employer community to clearly understand the issues. Examine from an authoritative perspective the current evidence for economic return and learn what the key variables are that will likely determine the economic return from a worksite wellness program. Finally learn what key future steps will be necessary for worksite wellness advocates to take in order to capture (or recapture) the economic “high ground.”
