Hi! I'm Dr. Rox!

 

I am a Health Behavior Change Expert and seasoned Functional Medicine Health & Wellness Coach  with a doctorate in Health Psychology, and a 25-year history in the field of health promotion, of which over 13 of these years has been spent in corporate wellness.

 

I have hit a pivotal point in my career where I am being driven by a profound commitment to making a tangible impact on a much larger scale outside of my private practice; particularly with those who are fed up, frustrated, and feel forgotten about when it comes to their quality of life as it relates to health; even more specifically, the impact of obesity on health outcomes and the quality of life.

 

I am passionate about partnering with companies who would like to take a more aggressive approach in tackling the issue of obesity within their workforce.

WHY TACKLE OBESITY IN THE WORKPLACE? 

 

 

Enhanced Employee Well-being:

Tackling obesity promotes the overall health and well-being of employees. A healthier workforce is likely to experience improved energy levels, reduced stress, and enhanced mental well-being, contributing to a more positive and engaged workplace.

Boosted Productivity:

Healthy employees are generally more productive. By addressing obesity, companies can reduce absenteeism and presenteeism, fostering a work environment where employees are physically and mentally prepared to perform at their best.

Reduced Healthcare Costs:

Obesity is often associated with higher healthcare costs due to increased risks of chronic diseases. By proactively addressing obesity through wellness programs, companies can mitigate healthcare expenses, benefiting both the organization and its employees.

Positive Company Culture:

Prioritizing employee health creates a positive company culture. When organizations demonstrate a commitment to the well-being of their workforce, it fosters loyalty, job satisfaction, and a sense of community among employees.

Improved Recruitment and Retention:

Companies that prioritize employee health are more attractive to prospective talent. In a competitive job market, offering wellness initiatives signals to potential hires that the organization values the overall welfare of its employees.

Enhanced Employee Morale:

Wellness initiatives aimed at tackling obesity can contribute to higher employee morale. When employees feel supported in their health goals, it positively impacts job satisfaction, team dynamics, and overall workplace morale.

Long-term Cost Savings:

While initial investments may be required to implement wellness programs, the long-term benefits include cost savings associated with reduced healthcare expenses, lower employee turnover, and increased productivity.

Legal Compliance and Corporate Social Responsibility:

In some jurisdictions, there may be legal requirements or guidelines related to employee health and safety. Tackling obesity aligns with corporate social responsibility, demonstrating a commitment to ethical business practices and employee welfare.

Risk Mitigation:

Obesity-related health issues pose a risk to individual employees and, by extension, to the organization. Addressing obesity helps mitigate these risks, ensuring a healthier and more resilient workforce.

 

Centers Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) population data from the National Healthy & Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES)of 2022 shows that:

  • 30.7% of United States adults are overweight,

  • 41.9% obese, and

  • 9.2% are extremely obese.

So over 81.8% of the US population is overweight or obese!

 

This leaves a mere 18.2% of our US population in a healthy weight range.  

 

The cost of medical claims for patients with obesity is DOUBLE than those without obesity.

 

A cost burdened by companies like yours.

Obesity can lead to decreased work performance, increased absenteeism, and higher rates of disability.

 

This results in lost productivity for employers, lower economic output, and decreased overall workforce efficiency.

 

Addressing obesity in the workplace is not just a health initiative; it is a strategic investment in the success and sustainability of the organization. By fostering a culture of health and well-being, companies can create a more positive, productive, and resilient workforce, ultimately contributing to long-term success.

WHY HEALTH COACHING TO TACKLE OBESITY & TYPE II DIABETES?

 

Obesity and Type II Diabetes are complex and pervasive health issues which demand a multifaceted approach that extends beyond traditional interventions.

Health coaching is emerging as a potent tool in addressing the intricate challenges posed by both obesity and Type II Diabetes.

 

American Medical Association (AMA) and the medical community are actively embracing health coaching for its effectiveness in promoting holistic care, empowering patients, addressing behavioral factors, and contributing to chronic disease management aligns seamlessly with the evolving vision of healthcare as a collaborative and patient-centered endeavor.

 

This growing acknowledgment of health coaching's effectiveness is underscored by the approval of health coaching billing codes by the AMA in recent years. which has allowed for health insurance reimbursement for health coaching services by some insurance companies.

 

It is important to note that AMA only recognizes health coaches who are certified by National Board of Health & Wellness Coaches.

 

An esteemed certification Dr. Rox also holds.

 

As related specifically to OBESITY & TYPE II DIABETES, health coaching, with its emphasis on personalized guidance and goal-oriented strategies, offers a tailored approach to weight management. By fostering a supportive and empowering relationship between individuals and their coaches, it cultivates sustainable lifestyle changes. This proactive engagement serves to not only address immediate health concerns, but also instills lasting habits that extend far beyond the coaching period.
