GWI’s New Research: The First to Make the Case for Why We Desperately Need Wellness Policy
GWI recently released its new report “Defining Wellness Policy,” the first research to make a compelling, evidence-backed argument as to why wellness policy is so direly needed now. It explains how a new focus on wellness policy could complement–but also fill the glaring gaps left by–both current public health policy and new happiness and wellbeing policy efforts. It could also tackle the serious gaps in the sick-care-focused medical system and in the private sector wellness industry, which is too often expensive and elitist, so clearly incapable of bringing wellness to all. The research makes a powerful case for why we need to step away from the hype of wellness as a consumer trend and business investment opportunity and realize that wellness should be embedded in the priorities for all government policymaking.
