Take Control of Your Health

Wellness Warriors

We are looking forward to getting started, and we encourage everyone to take full advantage of our Wellness Program. One’s health impacts every aspect of life – family, friends, work, and play. The wellness program will help you make beneficial choices for a healthier life. On this page, you will find the various resources available to you as well as the key steps to participate in the wellness program.

Here's to a healthier you!

This is a voluntary wellness program available to all employees. If you choose to participate in the wellness program you may be asked to complete a voluntary health risk assessment or "HRA" that asks a series of questions about your health-related activities and behaviors and whether you have or had certain medical conditions (e.g., cancer, diabetes, or heart disease). You may also be asked to complete a biometric screening, which will include a blood test for cholesterol and glucose. It may also include blood pressure, height and weight, BMI, and waist circumference. You are not required to complete the HRA or to participate in the blood test or other medical examinations. However, employees who choose to participate in the wellness program will receive an incentive for participating. The information from your HRA and the results from your biometric screening will be used to provide you with information to help you understand your current health and potential risks, and may also be used to offer you services through the wellness program, such as coaching, lifestyle management and fitness challenges. You also are encouraged to share your results or concerns with your own doctor.

Step 1 Participate in a Biometric Screening

Your employer is helping you become a “better you” by offering biometric screenings to help improve your understanding of your health and well-being. We do this by providing new insights to your health risks through laboratory results that include your cholesterol levels and your blood sugar. This is a fasting screening so no food or drink, except water, for at least 9 hours prior to your appointment.

Space and times are limited, so be sure to schedule your appointment soon! Check the calendar of screening events by clicking the link below.

Please remember that all information obtained in your screening is personal and confidential, as protected by federal law. Your employer will not have access to your individual results. We encourage you to share your screening results with your physician during your next visit.

Do yourself a favor and share your results with a loved one and take a look at your risks together, then tell them one behavior you will change today. It’s great to have someone cheering you on!

As a participant in the Wellness Program, you will have the opportunity to participate in wellness activities that encourage a healthy lifestyle. Be on the lookout for announcements that detail these upcoming activities! Remember, this is a free and completely confidential program. No individual health information is shared with the company.

Step 4 Unlimited Telephonic Wellness Coaching
