Healthy Rewards: A Successful First Year!

The Healthy Rewards Program has ended its first year as a success! The point-based program allows employees to earn points for completing an online well-being assessment, knowing their numbers, and participating in healthy activities – for example, tracking healthy eating habits, kicking a bad habit, and practicing stress management. The more challenges you join and complete, the more points you earn!

Employees participating in the program are entered into raffles for the chance to win rewards throughout the year.  Employees enrolled in the University of Pennsylvania medical plan also have an opportunity to earn a $150 healthy rewards credit.
