American Heart Association Recognizes Health Education

Oct 25, 2019

A.I.M. Mutual earned the Silver Level Workplace Health Achievement honor from the American Heart Association based on results of the countrywide 2019 Workplace Health Achievement Index.

This Index uses science-based best practices to evaluate the overall quality and comprehensiveness of corporate workplace health programs. It allows organizations to measure the effectiveness of their workplace health programs as well as the overall heart health of their employees.

Unlike other existing organizational scorecards, the Index scores organizations on the heart health of their employees based on Life’s Simple 7, the Association’s scientifically validated criteria for ideal heart health. The key factors contributing to optimal heart health include smoking cessation, maintaining a healthy weight, staying physically active, eating a healthy diet, managing blood pressure, lowering cholesterol and keeping blood sugar at a healthy level.
