Our local schools are scrubbing and sanitizing facilities in the wake of several cases of methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus – known as MRSA – in the student population. From our school Web site, parents can access a Public Health MRSA Fact Sheet and two separate communications on this issue. How is your organization responding to MRSA, and what steps are you taking to educate your population and prevent new cases? Take the survey on MRSA Prevention and Education by November 30 and you’ll receive a free e-summary of the results.

And while final results are pending, your responses to the October healthcare trends e-survey indicate that wellness is both a huge challenge and an opportunity to launch some of your most successful programs. Wellness experts are often asked whether employees’ spouses should be included in corporate wellness initiatives. In this week’s news, IBM has gone a step further and unveiled its Children’s Health Rebate to encourage the development of healthy habits in employees’ children. This is a great step toward stemming rising obesity rates in children.
