Managing Your Chronic Disease and Your Job

The Centers for Disease Control define chronic diseases as those that limit the activities of daily living or require ongoing medical attention, and last at least a year or more. When defined that way, it’s not surprising that six in 10 American adults have at least one chronic condition, and four out of 10 live with two or more. Chronic diseases include conditions such as cancer, diabetes and heart disease. These chronic conditions affect the productivity of people at work; according to the CDC, the lost productivity resulting from the seven most prevalent conditions equals a staggering 3.7 trillion dollars.

Employers can help employees with chronic diseases in a number of ways. To learn more about how your employer can help, check out the infographic below!
