JERSEY SHORE AREA SCHOOL DISTRICT

 

VIRTUAL WELLNESS TEAM

 

 

Welcome to the third year of the employee wellness program through Blue Health Solutions.  This year the details of the program will be available to you on your school district website.

 

Since most of us spend more waking hours at work, what better place to emphasize wellness and work with colleagues to attain our wellness goals.

 

Prevention, wellness and personal responsibility are emphasized in a good wellness program through taking an online health risk assessment, speaking with a health coach, knowing your biometric screening results and participating in exercise or nutrition/weight management programs.

 

Don’t hesitate to contact me with ideas for wellness activities that we can share with all employees.  Also, think seriously about joining your school’s wellness team. 

 

Thank you.

“We are really getting into the walking.  My wife is now training for a half marathon.” 

 

“I intended to have just the two conversations (with my health coach) that you need for the program, but they’re interesting and helpful, and they’ve been walking me through the packet of info that they sent so I asked them to keep calling.”

“I’ve lost 35 pounds!”
