Miami, FL (PRWEB) February 26, 2013
AvMed has launched a television public awareness campaign for the next 6 months to highlight health and wellness. The focus of “Wake Up to Good Health/Amanezca Saludable,” is to empower individuals with the tools to improve their health.
The campaign encourages personal responsibility for a healthy lifestyle with a theme of “Small changes, Big Impact.” The spots will air on NBC and Univision and feature long-time South Florida news personalities, Bob Mayer and Ileana Bravo.
Segments will focus on nutrition, exercise, stress management and cholesterol numbers that will drive viewers to an engaging website filled with wellness tips and primers on health insurance for individuals and employers. The online component of the campaign will make it available across all AvMed markets.
“Studies have shown that the majority of employers’ health care costs are impacted significantly by conditions that are preventable and can be managed by encouraging healthy lifestyles,” said James M. Repp, AvMed Senior Vice President. “This consumer campaign complements what we’ve been telling our employers all along, Healthy Employees = Healthy Bottom Line.”
AvMed strives to help groups improve the health of their employees. Employers who invest in employee wellness will see savings though reduced absenteeism, hospital admissions and sick days. “It’s a win-win for both the employer and the employee,” added Repp.
