Wellfocused Program: What’s new this year?

WellfocusedSpring is in the air, and with it comes a chance to have a fresh start on improving your health and well-being all while earning rewards with the Wellfocused program.

The Wellfocused new program year launched this week with a fresh, new, energetic look along with a new three-tiered program structure. The program allows UPHS employees to receive rewards for participating in the many different health related activities, improving, or maintaining good health. For each activity or action you complete, like tracking healthy eating habits, starting an exercise routine and managing your stress, you earn points that allow you to move through the levels and earn rewards.
