Department Services

Born out of the concept "If you can't get the employee to the fitness center or wellness programs, then bring it to the employee's department". Departmental services are designed to increase employee participation in wellness programming, boost departmental morale, and enhance productivity.

Health Breaks

Enjoy quick and informative sessions on a variety of health topics. Health breaks are exactly what their name implies; 10-20 minute activity sessions conducted in the workplace and led by our professional staff. Topics include presentations on heart health, nutrition, exercise, and the UD employee wellness benefit. To schedule your own departmental health break, contact the HealthyU program office at 831-8388.

"Know your Numbers" and Fitness Assessments

Is it hard for employees in your department to get away to attend one of our many screening because of scheduling/location constraints? We can bring the screening to your location for your ultimate convenience. Screenings put employees in touch with their health and can help determine individualized goals. Our most popular, "Know your Numbers" screening consists of: blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose (blood sugar) measurements. Must have at least 5 participants.

Cost: $15 Wellness Dollars per individual. To schedule your departmental health screening, contact the HealthyU program office at 831-8388.

Fit Stop

A fitness assessment is a series of measurements that help determine physical fitness level. Traditionally conducted in a fitness center setting, the Healthy U staff can bring this service out to your department. Measurements include height, weight, blood pressure, resting heart rate, aerobic capacity, muscle strength/endurance, and flexibility. A detailed report will be generated for each individual being tested. Must have at least 5 participants.
