Walk-ins welcome at MHealthy Rewards screenings today and Wednesday

Walk-ins are welcome at the on-site StayWell Wellness Screenings at the Pendleton Room of the Michigan Union today and Wednesday. Participants are encouraged, but not required, to complete their annual health questionnaire before the screening.

No appointment is needed for people arriving between the following times:

• Today, 1:30 p.m.-4:30 p.m.

• Wednesday, 8:30 a.m.-10:30 a.m. and 1 p.m.-3:30 p.m.

To protect privacy, U-M has again contracted with StayWell, a national provider of health improvement services, to administer the wellness screening and health questionnaire.

The confidential screening is open to benefits-eligible employees and takes approximately 40-minutes. It includes checking blood pressure, cholesterol, weight and height and then reviewing the results with a StayWell health professional and discussing health goals.

This year, MHealthy Rewards includes:

• Completing the confidential annual health questionnaire.

• Completing a confidential wellness screening.

Qualifying benefits-eligible employees who complete both steps by May 2012 receive a $100 before-tax reward in their paycheck.
