About online Healthy Living Programs

When you (or your UPlan-covered spouse/same-sex domestic partner) complete one Healthy Living online program by the deadline of August 31, 2014, you can earn 50 wellness points for your Wellness Points Bank. The 50 wellness points are the maximum number of points that can be earned for completing a Healthy Living online program. However, it is feasible to enroll in and complete more than one of the programs in the suite of Healthy Living options.

The suite of Healthy Living online programs are designed to help University employees change their health habits. These self-paced online programs offer a step-by-step approach to behavioral change that can be tailored to your needs and wellness goals. Depending upon which six-week Healthy Living program you enroll in, you may expect to receive, among other things:

  • information and advice
  • tools to create a plan and measure your progress toward meeting your goals
  • a weekly "to-do" list
  • motivational messages via e-mail

You can choose from one of the following options:

  • Cancer-Fighting
  • Diabetes-Fighting
  • Easy Start
  • Get in Shape
  • Healthier Diet
  • Healthy Aging
  • Healthy Heart
  • Smoke-Free
  • Stress Relief
  • Weight Loss
  • Healthy Seniors
