||Economic evaluation of a worksite obesity prevention and intervention trial among hotel workers in Hawaii
||Jan. 2010, Vol.52, No.1S, p.S8-S13. 24 ref.
||The objective of this study was to evaluate a work, weight and wellness (3W) programme, a two-year randomized trial of a weight loss program delivered through Hawaii hotel worksites. Data on medical costs, absenteeism and productivity were obtained from the participating hotels. Findings are discussed. 3W's positive clinical outcomes did not translate into immediate economic benefit for participating hotels, although modest cost savings were observed in the trial's second year.
