To evaluate the association of participation in IBM’s “A Plan for Life” program with changes in blood pressure, serum total, high-density lipoprotein, and non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, body mass index, and cigarette smoking, we compared changes in these measures over a 1- to 5-year period among program participants and nonparticipants initially found to be at risk. After adjustment for age, sex, time to follow-up, and baseline values, the proportion of participants no longer at high risk was significantly greater than the corresponding proportion of nonparticipants in the areas of blood pressure total and non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol and smoking cessation.
