2018-19 wellness program: Win for Life

Creating a healthy lifestyle can be like playing a board game. Go to the gym - advance two spaces forward. Pack a healthy lunch - move forward three. Forget to take your blood pressure medication - take two steps back.

The Health and Wellness team is here to help you succeed. We offer activities and options to educate and motivate you to move forward in life and help you make the best decisions for your health. So get on board and Win for Life.

This year, you’ll recognize a familiar wellness program. You still need to visit your doctor for biometric measurements, take a health assessment and complete a wellness engagement option. But there are enhancements to the Win for Life program designed to increase involvement and fit your 21st-century lifestyle.

Mission

Complete the health assessment and wellness engagement options by the deadlines to earn up to $900 off your 2019 medical plan rate.
