WellBAMA Rewards. Participation in the annual health screening and coaching program also includes a financial WellBAMA Reward.

Rewards are also based on participation in group sessions, as well as participation in one wellness program. Payment will only be issued to those that are full-time, benefit-eligible employees at the time of Reward distribution.
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 score sheet 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 drink plenty of water.
