Total Worker Health In the News

  • NPR, RWJ, and Harvard had created a poll on the workplace and health. You can access the poll from from here, which also include a link to a fantastic NPR/RWJ/Harvard forum about the poll. It’s great to see recognition of the organization of work as a target of intervention for job stress. Glorian Sorensen, director of our TWH Center of Excellence at Harvard participated in the forum, which also included a video with the recognizable voice of Dr. Howard.
  • The National Safety Council released survey results in June about workers’ perceptions about safety, finding that there is still much more that needs to be done to prioritize injury prevention.
