Build A New You in the New Year!

Last November, the Healthy Rewards Wellfocused program rolled out Build A NEW You, a campaign to help build awareness of your current health status and help you take steps to improve or maintain your good health. Throughout November and December, the focus was on emotional health and well-being.

There were new challenges in the Healthy Rewards site focusing on sleep, setting your schedule, and other things to reduce stress. There were also Stress Management techniques lunch n’ learns offered onsite at nine locations across the Health System.

During the months of January, February, and March, you will see new programs and initiatives focusing on knowing your numbers, physical health, and good nutrition. Make sure you know your numbers and health risks by completing the online well-being assessment in the Healthy Rewards site and by receiving an onsite biometric screening (when they are offered) or regularly checking in with your doctor. You’ll learn about your BMI, cholesterol, blood pressure and glucose levels. You’ll also earn 500 Healthy Rewards points when you complete the well-being assessment and get your annual biometric screening!
