:60 READER SCRIPT
(DOES NOT FULLY MATCH AUDIO)

TWO-THIRDS OF AMERICANS SAY THAT A SMALL, DAILY INCENTIVE WOULD MOTIVATE THEM TO DEVOTE AN HOUR, EACH DAY, TOWARD IMPROVING THEIR HEALTH.  AND, MOST SAY THAT THEY'D BE MORE LIKELY TO PARTICIPATE IN A FITNESS-ROUTINE--IF IT OFFERED AN OPPORTUNITY TO SOCIALIZE OR MAKE FRIENDS.  THAT'S ACCORDING TO THE LATEST "WELLNESS CHECKUP SURVEY", FROM "UNITED-HEALTHCARE".  MOST RESPONDENTS ARE OPTIMISTIC ABOUT STAYING HEALTHY, AS THEY AGE--WITH MANY EXPECTING TO BE ABLE TO ACCOMPLISH EVERYDAY ACTIVITIES UNTIL THEY'RE 80 OR OLDER.  HOWEVER, FEWER THAN A QUARTER CORRECTLY RECOGNIZE THAT THE MAJORITY OF PREMATURE CHRONIC-CONDITIONS--SUCH AS HEART-DISEASE, STROKE, AND DIABETES--ARE GENERALLY CAUSED BY MODIFIABLE LIFESTYLE-CHOICES, INCLUDING SMOKING AND OBESITY.  WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR EMPLOYERS?  "UNITED-HEALTHCARE" IS WORKING WITH COMPANIES, TO ENHANCE THEIR WELLBEING-PROGRAMS--WHICH, IN TURN, MAY HELP IMPROVE THEIR EMPLOYEES' HEALTH, REDUCE ABSENTEEISM, AND CURB HEALTHCARE-COSTS.  TO LEARN MORE, VISIT "U-H-C"-DOT-COM.
