UAB Employee Wellness strives to cultivate an environment where employees feel supported and encouraged to be their healthiest within the workplace. Through innovative and collaborative efforts, employees can take advantage of various wellness offerings focused on five major areas:
- Tobacco Cessation
- Physical Activity & Recreation
- Prevention & Health Management
- Overall well-being
UAB employees can find support, accountability and prize incentive opportunities for practicing healthy behaviors through the My Health Rewards program. My Health Rewards is an informative, motivating, points-based initiative that can help you understand your current health status and offer tools to minimize or prevent future health problems. This self-reporting system enables you to earn points and be entered into a sweepstakes when you participate in activities such as exercise, preventive screenings, healthy eating, fitness events and online wellness education. The more activities you complete, the more points you earn, increasing your chances to win a $150, $300 and even $1,000 gift card. (Prize winnings are taxable earnings and subject to applicable taxes.)
