The "wellness" scam

Idaho’s Boise School District has just received the "workplace wellness" industry’s highest award. But apparently "wellness" doesn't mean people are actually healthy.  According to Stat: 

"More key measures of health deteriorated than improved. Self-reported quality of health got worse. And health care costs jumped around in a way that suggests any changes were due at least in part to random fluctuations and possibly employee turnover, not any benefits of the wellness program."
