Friday Wellness Roundup: News to Use

If it's Friday, it's time to provide quick links to interesting stories from the world of corporate wellness that you might have missed.

1. The Wall Street Journal Health Blog had a good item about Sen. Hillary Clinton's plan to cap health insurance premiums. Interesting for employers to contemplate.

2. The New York Times' Tara Parker Pope has a fascinating post about people who are bullied at work by bosses and co-workers. Be sure to read the many fascinating--and scary--comments on this post.

3. The About.com Health Insurance blog has a fascinating item about the placebo effect and drug costs. Turns out that the more people think a pill costs, the more likely they are to recover from their condition. Combine that with an item about Wal-Mart's claim that it has saved people $1 billion by offering generic drugs for just $4 per prescription and. . .well, that's plenty to think about for the week.

In good health,

Fiona
