Health, Presenteeism, & Employee Engagement: Role of Migraine & Other Workplace Condition Management - May 17, 2018
Philadelphia DoubleTree Hotel, 237 South Broad Street

Free for GPBCH Members
Migraine is the third most prevalent chronic disease in the world. In the US, 12% of the population suffers from migraine, with prevalence greatest in working age women. Employers typically do not address migraine in their disease management strategies because it doesn’t show up in claims review as a significant cost driver. However, migraine is vastly under-diagnosed, and much of the economic impact is on indirect cost (lost productivity), especially presenteeism – employees showing up for work but not performing to their typical standard due poor health.

In this session, we’ll discuss the epidemiology and economics of migraine, and how workplace management programs can measure and address presenteeism for migraine and for other common chronic conditions that significantly impact productivity. Our speakers include:

- Wayne Burton, MD, Former Chief Medical Officer for American Express

- Maureen McCluskey Health/Wellness Disease Education Specialist

- Carole Mendoza, Executive Director of Benefits, Amgen

With a new generation of migraine prevention specialty drugs on the horizon, it’s crucial that employers and consultants take a fresh look at migraine as a prevalent chronic condition. Hope you’ll join us.

This program is made possible through a sponsorship from Amgen.
