If Kaiser wants to be in a position to show Solano County how to improve the health of employees, it should first get its own employees to shape up-- literally. Many Kaiser staff members are overweight or obese and they show no sign that they are improving their conditions.
Patients look to hospital staff to model healthy lifestyles. If they see that Kaiser lets its staff members remain overweight, the message they get is that Kaiser feels it's OK to be overweight and to stay that way.
"Physician, heal thyself". Solano County needs to look elsewhere for advice on how to live healthily

So, another "grant" for Kaiser Permanente to set up more obstacles so those people who were duped into buying Kaiser Permanente's pseudo-insurance will never see a specialist for needed/expensive treatment.

Kaiser Permanente has been caught repeatedly breaking the law. Why is it that Kaiser Permanente is allowed to continue to do business in California?

"The county has cultivated a wellness culture that, we hope, will both improve the health of our employees and ultimately their families and their communities," said County Supervisor John Vasquez. "Participating in this pilot project will keep our wellness momentum going."

A bigger load of bs was never uttered.

I don't get it...what's so innovative about this program? I don't see anything new here. This is the same information we ALREADY get from tv, from our doctors, from magazines, etc. Essentially, its just reiterating what I would hope most of us should already know: stop smoking, lose weight, exercise more, eat better, blah blah blah.

Go to any drug store and get your blood pressure reading, go to any gym and get your body mass tested, read a book on nutrition, walk around the block...no need for classes on this stuff. Besides, after looking at county employees salaries, I'd say they could afford to these things on their own. No need to waste grant money on this BS.

Want to be innovative? Put the responsibility on the individual and make them do the work, do their own research, show initiative to live healthier. Then provide work incentives for demonstrating these things, lower insurance rates, etc. That would be something to get excited over. This is the sale old stuff we've seen before.

If county employees are excited over this, then perhaps we should have stricter hiring standards.

Michelle's pork butt could feed a family of four for a month in Africa. That woman is a disgrace to my people.

No i will drink champagne with george w's daughter, because we both know the party of NO couldnt get it done..... I personally know two children that obama care has helped... Al the plan is so spread out over many years, the bad can be changed. open your mind and stop planning for the worst, and put your efforts into changing the bad into good. Remember we are starting to be a country of diabetics, and KAISER and northbay are trying to keep people out of the emergency room, and injections.

I am truely sorry for your lack of intelligence. Also, strictly for your information the correct I hope the correct spelling for which you were searching was "there instead of "their." Your people? Who are your people? From what you described, your people sound like poor cannibals.
