The “All Stressed and No Place to Go” PowerPoint presentation is intended to serve as a supplement to the work you are already performing, or you are planning to perform in the future, in your county regarding cardiovascular disease in relation to stress. This PowerPoint is a tool that you may used with employers, managers, business councils, school personnel, etc. to help identify strategies and policies that can reduce stress in the workplace. Many companies across the United States have unhealthy employees. You will find eight slides that address this issue specifically. The twelve initial slides are designed to assist Extension agents in articulating the relationship between stress and chronic disease. In addition, the slides give information that is specific to Kentucky.
The “All Stressed and No Place to Go” presentation is a wonderful way to introduce a variety of health programs including: Weight: The Reality Series; Get Moving Kentucky! physical activity program with its related “Health Breaks”; and Heart and Soul. Employers in your county are also invited to use Sam Quick’s “A World of Possibilities” materials at their worksites.
