Worksite "House Calls"
In order to increase your
department's knowledge of the services provided by the University's Wellness
Program and promote healthy lifestyles, we are offering a new component to the
wellness program. We will be instituting worksite "house calls".
Staff from the wellness program will arrange a brief visit that will involve an
overview of Employee Wellness and tips on what can be done to improve health
from a worksite perspective. Visits are under 30 minutes in duration and
will be done only on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We request that all
departments interested in this program, please set up an appointment by
in advance with the wellness office. Wellness orientation packets will be
provided to all participants.
are paths already mapped out for walking on campus where bathrooms
and water fountains have been identified. Choose between the
easier scenic route,
and "The Grizzly", a
route filled with behind-the scenes stairs and slopes for
power walking and maximum calorie burn.
Want to start a lunch hour walking
club in your department? Let us know and we will be happy to get your department
walking for rewards! Contact us by email to set up an appointment.
Don't belong to the same department? Friends at
Mercer may also start a walking club.

healthy living quota achieved through analyzing your completed questionnaire,
blood pressure, and a few other painless endurance tests. It is an
awareness tool for employees. A lot of people want to live a more quality life
(less pain, control disease, healthy weight, etc.) but don't really know where
to begin. The HRP helps guide you to the starting line. Wellness Tool Kits will
be provided to all who complete the assessment.
Do the requirements for exercise
rewards just make you tired at this stage of your healthy living goals? There's
still one more way to get rewarded. Attend at least 10 classes from the "Live &
Learn" series and you'll earn a cool T-shirt for your efforts!
