For the third year in a row, PRA has been recognized by the American Heart Association (AHA) in its annual Workplace Health Achievement Index. By embedding a culture of health and wellness in the office, PRA was able to surpass its previous bronze-level awards to achieve silver-level recognition this year. New in 2018, PRA began using the American Heart Association’s “My Life Check®” tool, a specialized, science-based online tool designed to help protect people from heart disease.
This resource was first shared in 2018.
