Barbara Zabawa Urges Wellness Programs To Protect Civil Rights

Former Fellow Barbara Zabawa (’01), owner of the Center for Health and Wellness Law, wrote an article for the Wellness Council of America (“What Civil Rights Law Can Teach Workplace Wellness Professionals,” Nov. 7). “By failing to address societal constraints and how health resources are currently allocated … programs that incentivize certain [standardized health-maintenance] behaviors and penalize others further discriminate against individuals for whom civil rights laws are designed to protect,” Barbara said.
