Event Description

IBI, Sedgwick and UnitedHealth Group, with additional support from Pfizer and Pinnacol Assurance, have partnered to sponsor a special issue of the leading health policy journal, Health Affairs , on the link between health and work. The February 2017 issue will shine a spotlight on this complex and constantly-evolving relationship from the perspective of both employers and employees. As national health policy remains a subject of intense debate, this issue will serve as an important contribution to the growing body of literature guiding deliberations on this critical topic.

Health Affairs is hosting two upcoming briefings—one in Washington, DC and the other in San Francisco —featuring authors from the journal who will present their studies and discuss strategies for building the safest, healthiest, and most productive workforce possible while drawing broader implications for the upcoming national debate concerning healthcare reform.
