Cigna – Survey on Vitality

Dr. Stuart Lustig, National Medical Executive for Behavioral Health at Evernorth, a Cigna Company, discusses key findings from the Evernorth Vitality Index, the largest study on the state of vitality, health and productivity in America. The survey of more than 10,000 American adults (aged 18-75) found that less than one in five U.S. adults report high levels of vitality – defined as the capacity to pursue life’s joys with health, strength and energy. This is the first tool to measure health and vitality levels for personal, business and community impact. Learn more here.
