Institute for Health and Productivity Studies

The Health Project

The mission of The Health Project  is to seek out, evaluate, promote and distribute quality health promotion/disease prevention programs with the objectives of (1) providing appropriate quality care, and (2) sharply reducing the rate of healthcare inflation by holding down unnecessary expenditures. In recent years, The Health Project has primarily focused on awarding and disseminating high-impact, outcomes-driven employer health promotion initiatives. It stores information about those proven programs on its public website so that corporations and community agencies may access them according to their needs. The database is improved and enlarged annually with each granting of the C. Everett Koop Awards. The Institute for Health and Productivity Studies serves as the administrative home for The Health Project. Currently, Dr. Ron Goetzel serves as The Health Project’s President and CEO.
