Wellness programs are widely offered by employers, health insurance programs, and social service agencies. Formal programs typically include preventive measures (for example, immunizations against pneumococcal pneumonia and influenza in the elderly) and surveillance for common diseases (for example, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and breast and colon cancer). Such programs tend to attract people already attuned to healthful attitudes and practices. Little clinical evidence exists to support their usefulness or justify their expense.

Patient discussion about wellness
Q. I am a nutrition and wellness trainer. I am a bachelor who is staying with 5 more in a rented room which cost $10 a day. As I am unemployed, five other friends of mine are sharing the rent without taking a single dollar from me as they know my difficulties. I am a nutrition and wellness trainer. I lost my job 2 months back and searching for new one. As I do not have too much of money I also do not eat well. I am scared that I will get sick and not have enough of money for my hospitalization. Please tell me what to do?
