Villanova Walk @ Lunch Day: May 1st

Villanova University will kickoff the spring walking program, Race the States 2014, on Thursday, May 1st. There will be a brief kickoff at noon outside Connelly Center near the OREO followed by two walks, 12p.m. and 1.p.m. At the conclusion of each walk, participants will receive a healthy brown bag lunch and will be entered into a raffle for two iPad minis.

Villanova offers a wellness program through our vendor LiveHealthier. It includes onsite Health Screenings, access to HealthCoaches and a website with support tools and resources. These screenings, in conjunction with the Personal Health Assessment, provide you with a more complete view of your health, and the Health Coaches can help you achieve any health improvement goal you set.

After you complete the onsite Health Screening, your results can help you take action to improve your health – both now and in the future. You also have access to the Health Coaches by visiting the Wellness Portal and clicking on Get Health Coaching.

Villanova has partnered with LiveHealthier®, a global provider of innovative health management programs, to administer the program. While participation is completely voluntary and your privacy is protected, we strongly encourage everyone to participate and take advantage of the benefits the program has to offer. Together, we can work towards making Villanova a healthier community.  For more information on privacy and security, please read Live Healthier's Confidentiality FAQ's.
