Weight Watchers at Work Program Needs a Few More Participants

The Health Services Office has had employee interest in having a Weight Watchers at Work Program for the spring semester.  It would be held on campus at a convenient time so student, staff and faculty interested in joining would be able to attend.  It would be a regular Weight Watchers meeting with a weekly weigh in and a 1/2 hour meeting.

The cost would be $10.00 for each meeting.  Weight Watchers has new programs starting this year we can do an 8 week series for $80.00, a 10 week program for $100.00, or 12 weeks for $120.00 paid in advance at the first meeting.  If anyone is interested in the program, please call Health Services at ext. 4730 or email anita.burns@wilkes.edu.  We need a minimum of 15 participants.

As part of the University¹s ongoing Employee Wellness Initiative, there will be a reimbursement to all full-time faculty and staff who complete the series.  

New guidelines are        
Must be a full time employee of Wilkes University
·         Show proof of attendance at all meetings
·         At the conclusion of the program the reimbursement will be as follows:
                          First Time attendee – 50% reimbursement of the total cost of the program
                          Repeat attendee through Wilkes – 25% reimbursement of the total cost of the program
Health Services will refund any students interested in participating at 50% discounted rate as long as you show proof of attending all meetings.

Also, if you are interested we would like to have an idea of a time that would be most beneficial to each person.  Let us know if a meeting before work, lunch time, or after work would be best and a day that would be most convenient.
