2014:  WellBAMA Rewards

WellBAMA Rewards. Participation in the annual health screening and coaching program also includes a financial WellBAMA Reward. Faculty and staff will earn a $25 gift card for participating their first year, also becoming eligible to earn up to $200 in year two (Crimson-$200, Gold-$100, Silver-$50), based on  WellBAMA club status and overall wellness program involvement. Rewards are also based on participation in group sessions, as well as participation in one wellness program.


STEP 1.  Get Screened

The WellBAMA program begins with your personal health screening. The measurements include: height, weight, blood pressure, cholesterol, triglycerides, blood glucose, and other health factors. Once you complete your health screening you will meet with your personal health coach. Your health coach will review your scoresheet and inform you of your club level (Crimson, Gold, Silver). You may complete these measurements with your health care provider or on campus at one of the many WellBAMA events. To complete with your health care provider, please download the WellBAMA Medical Qualification Form and submit to our office. Note:  Participants can substitute blood work results from their primary care provider for the on-site blood work screening, with additional measurements completed during the health screening. To ensure accurate results, participants should not eat food ten hours prior to testing and drink plenty of water.
