It’s March! You know what that means… St. Patrick’s Day? The start of Lent? The highly anticipated arrival of Spring? Well, yes…but, it’s also National Nutrition Month! Yes, there is a whole month to simply celebrate nutrition. And, for good reason. Fueling your body with the essential nutrients will provide vitality and energy, help you stay at a healthy weight, prevent chronic diseases and conditions, enhance cognitive well being, and help you achieve your full potential.

I found this great article from @HoustonChronicle on how co-workers are influenced by their peers. http://work.chron.com/coworkers-affect-employee-behavior-4245.html

Some of the key areas where behavior is swayed are “bullying, complaining, productivity, and entrepreneurship”. One of the areas that I have a heightened awareness to that I noticed was missing from the article was wellness.

But of those people who have diabetes, 27.8% of them are undiagnosed.  What does this mean for employers, and what can be done to address this expensive issue?
