Integrating Employees’ Health and Well-Being to Improve the Bottom Line
L. Casey Chosewood, M.D.
Senior Medical Officer, Director, Office for Total Worker Health™ Coordination and
Research, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health
Wednesday, Nov. 19 │ 8: 30 - 10 a.m.
Dr. Chosewood speaks from experience when he says that the health problems employees bring to
work affect workers' comp and disability costs. As a regional medical director who oversaw occupational health services for a multinational telecommunications giant with 30,000 employees, he saw
the impact firsthand. Now he'll show you how to reduce that impact and lower costs by integrating
the traditionally segmented roles of occupational health and safety with health promotion and post
injury management – a tactic already adopted by some large employers but that can be implemented in an organization of any size.
Luncheon and Teddy Awards Presentation
Wednesday, Nov. 19 │ 12: 15 - 1: 30 p.m.

discussion, this year’s Teddy Award winners will share details
of their innovative program improvements — and maybe even give you an idea you can use to take
your program to the next level.

“In my 35 years working in the insurance industry,
NWCDC is the most informative of all conferences I
have attended! From the Keynotes to a wide variety
of classroom discussions, I continue to gain insight
