AMA board member Dr. Patrice Harris notes that, “Prolonged sitting, particularly in work settings, can cause health problems, and encouraging work places to offer employees alternatives to sitting all day will help to create a healthier workforce.” Of course, we already knew this, but it’s nice to have such distinguished new members on our team in the fight against sitting disease.

Healthy at-work options like sit-or-stand desks give workers the power to take control of their health and improve their performance on the job at the same time.
