Sarah’s current focus is to help employers figure out their chronic disease burden in their workplace, diagnose the underlying causes, and find innovative evidence-based solutions to complement their existing benefits and wellness plans to improve their workplace health and productivity, and ultimately to reduce costs. This translates into a research interest in policies for health and wellness benefits that reduce the disease burden and resulting health care costs, and improve overall labour productivity and economic competitiveness.
