Workplace Flexibility May Support Cardiovascular Health 

November 15, 2023: Researchers found that introducing flexibility into the workplace supported the cardiovascular health of adults aged 45 years or older and those who had increased cardiovascular disease risks. Through a 12-month program, hundreds of adults from two industries—IT and long-term care—participated in workplace wellness training. Before and after the intervention, employees participated in cardiovascular health screenings. At the end of the study, most adults didn’t see significant cardiovascular health improvements; however, a subset of participants—older adults and those with increased cardiovascular risks—did. These benefits were comparable to taking 5 to 10 years off of their cardiovascular age. The study was published in the American Journal of Public Health and was supported by the CDC and the NIH.
