Abstract

The potential for developing health promotion programs at the worksite has not yet been tapped. Nutrition education programs for weight reduction and attuned to cardiovascular risk factors related to diet offer particular promise because they can be put into practice so easily in company cafeterias. The combination of a prudent eating plan and the behavioral techniques which teach people how to adhere to such a diet have been developed and can be put into practice. As programs are developed, we hope that they will be designed so that their cost effectiveness can be evaluated.
