Knowing Your Numbers Health Screening
The health screening event by Kaiser Permanente on January 16 & 17, 2013 proved to be a great success with a total of 235 participants. In two days, 235 SJSU employees got screened for cholesterol, blood glucose, blood pressure, and body composition. At the end of each appointment employees received all their results!
Thrive Across America
Congratulations to all of our Thrive Across America participants! We had 275 participants and 34 teams who logged in 700,732 minutes of physical activity. Bigbang Molecules was the first place team and 4 Fitness Maniacs was the second place team. Joanna Gonzalez was our overall top individual.
Kaiser Permanente (KP) has selected SJSU to be a part of their worksite wellness program. This is an exciting opportunity for our wellness program as they will provide us with great resources. They have chosen one Calpers organization from Northern California and one organization from Southern California to be a part of their program. SJSU was selected based on our established existing wellness program, Well U, the size of our workforce, and our proximity to Kaiser medical facilities.
KP’s goal for this workplace wellness program is to improve overall employee health and health awareness through engaging participation in wellness activities at work. KP will be partnering with Well U to enhance our existing programs and incorporating new programs. We will have our own Kaiser Healthworks representative that we will use as our consultant to plan activities and events. KP is committed to make a serious investment into our wellness efforts including covering expenses for screenings, supplies such as pedometers, cost for speakers to come to campus, celebrations, prizes, etc.
The Thrive Across America fitness challenge kicked off our partnership.
