The C. Everett Koop National Health Awards recognize outstanding worksite health promotion and improvement programs. Each year, awards are presented by The Health Project’s leadership to winning organizations as part of the HERO Forum.
One of the unique and important requirements of the Koop Awards is that winners are able to document results, both in terms of health improvement and economic impact. The projects must answer the questions: what was done; did it work; and was it worth it.
Through its tradition of awarding programs with demonstrated health improvements coupled with cost savings, The Health Project has been instrumental in promoting the measurement and evaluation of evidence-based workplace health promotion programs.
