******************************************************

This is year seven of the Healthy OHIO Wellness Initiative. We are excited to provide you with this opportunity which will allow you to learn more about your health, in addition to contributing to the planning and development of an initiative to create a "culture of wellness" at Ohio University.

Purpose

  • Provide Ohio University employees with information about their current health status
  • Create a "Culture of Wellness" at Ohio University
  • Gather aggregate data that will be used to guide the planning and development of programs, services, and benefits to meet the health needs of Ohio University employees.

Participation

All benefit-eligible Ohio University employees and their spouses/partners can participate in the Healthy OHIO wellness initiative and receive incentives. Dependents and retirees are not eligible to participate.

The Healthy OHIO wellness initiative is supported by Ohio University leadership. Participation in Healthy OHIO is encouraged, although completely voluntary.

Step 1 - Health Screening

Health screenings may be completed at one of our campus screenings or by your health care provider. The campus screenings are free of charge. These screenings are for general indicators for health--they are not diagnostic tests. The following values will be collected at the health screenings: Frame size, Height, Weight, Blood Pressure, Total Cholesterol, Triglycerides, High & Low Density Lipoprotein (HDL & LDL), Blood Glucose (blood sugar), Waist Girth, Hip Girth, Body Fat Percentage, HbA1c (for individuals with diabetes).

Choose your Provider
You have two options for your health screening:

1. Campus Health Screening - Free health screenings will be offered Monday through Friday starting September 9, from 7:00-9:00AM in the Human Resources and Training Center located at 169 W. Union Street. The screening should take no more than 30 minutes. To begin your participation in Healthy OHIO, call WellWorks at 593-2093 to schedule your free health screening.

2. Physician - Take the Health Screening Form to your health care provider for your values. If your health care provider does not have all of the values indicated on the form, you may sign up for a campus health screening to receive the remaining assessment(s). Screening values are only valid if performed within the 3 months prior to the date when you complete the Personal Wellness Profile. They must be faxed to WellWorks (740-593-0170) by November 26 for participation in this year's wellness initiative.

Health Screening Results
Campus health screening results will be uploaded to your online Personal Wellness Profile (PWP)

Step 2 - Personal Wellness Profile (PWP)

After you complete the health screening and receive an email notification that you are ready to proceed, you can complete the online Personal Wellness Profile (PWP). The PWP is a survey containing items about medical history and health habits. Topics include: General Health, Physical Activity, Nutrition, Stress & Well-Being, Driving & Safety, Sleep, Tobacco & Alcohol, Mental Health, Lifestyle Changes, and Health Interests. The profile should take less than 30 minutes to complete. Paper profiles are available upon request.

Personal Wellness Profile Report
When you complete your PWP online, you will receive results instantly. You will need to PRINT a copy of your report to BRING to your health coaching session. Consider sharing your results with your health care provider and keeping a copy for your records as well.

Step 3 - Individual Health Coaching

Follow-up coaching sessions will be held at WellWorks located in E124 Grover Center. The purpose of the individual coaching is to help you better understand your results and provide you with health information and resources available to assist you with your next step. Please bring a copy of your Personal Wellness Profile Report with you to your health coaching session.
