Passion for cancer prevention earns Moda Health top honor

(June 28, 2013) – You can say that Moda Health’s passion for cancer prevention is contagious. Each day, the Pacific Northwest health company delivers useful health information and offers disease prevention programs and cancer screening benefits that fire up employees and members to live healthy lifestyles and reduce cancer risks. For its unwavering fight against cancer, Moda Health (formerly ODS Health) has been selected by the American Cancer Society as the recipient of the 2013 Corporate Impact Award: Excellence in Cancer Control.

“Our cancer prevention programs touch the lives of thousands of individuals every day. This provides us with a unique opportunity to communicate on multiple levels the importance of cancer awareness and prevention to all of our employees and members,” said Rod Hart, director of Healthcare Services at Moda Health. “Our team is dedicated to educating our members about life-changing steps they can make to live healthy, as well as understand the benefits of proactive cancer screenings, and how early detection can save lives.”

For eight years, Moda Health has been a corporate champion and flagship sponsor for the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer® program. The company continues to promote efforts of the society within its employee giving program, such as Relay for Life®, offering Quit For Life®, a smoking-cessation program supported by AlereTM Wellbeing, and Camp Ukandu, an inspiring summer camp for kids living with cancer. Moda Health also advocates the society’s Meeting WellTM guidelines for physical activity and healthy food ideas at the workplace.

Along with offering employees cancer screening benefits that include 100 percent health cost coverage for preventive care screenings that have been reviewed and recommended by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, Moda Health offers employees valuable nutrition information, on-site biometric health screening services, a Weight Watchers incentive program, yoga and exercise classes, and provides accommodations for bicycle-commuting employees and workplace exercise breaks. The company also holds an annual Charity Challenge that encourages employees to live healthy while raising money for their favorite local charities.

“We are very proud and honored to be recognized by the American Cancer Society for our ongoing commitment to helping individuals and their loved ones prevent and fight cancer,” said William Johnson, M.D., M.B.A., president of Moda Health. “We understand the unique position we are in to raise the awareness of what people can do to reduce their cancer risk and control cancer. This recognition is a testament to the many disease prevention initiatives we’ve created to educate and empower our employees and members to make healthy choices throughout their lives.”

The annual award recognizes a company that provides health information, programs and benefits in the following four cancer prevention behaviors: physical activity, nutrition, tobacco, and cancer screening. Along with providing strategic health communications to increase employee participation in cancer prevention and control programs, the company must also track and report health participation and outcomes. These are all areas Moda Health has long been promoting, educating and encouraging its employees and members to participate in on a daily basis.
