HEALTH (Helping Employees Achieve Lifetime Total Health) is the UNCP Employee Wellness Committee. HEALTH’s primary purpose is to educate UNCP employees and faculty through health promotion programs and activities and education seminars. We strive to encourage the UNCP family to adopt healthier lifestyles and to take steps to prevent illness or disease from starting or getting worse.
HEALTH programming is offered throughout the year, with an aim on providing programs, activities and contests that are universal enough to appeal to the majority of UNCP employees.
HEALTH provides education with the intent to help the faculty and staff overcome any predisposed, health-limiting conditions.
Furthermore, HEALTH reinforces a wellness environment by promoting activity and healthy nutrition. Examples of HEALTH programming that reinforced wellness have been Get FIT Pembroke, the HAWK WALK trail, the HEALTHy Meals Cookbook, and 100 miles in 100 days.
Finally, in an effort to enable healthy behavior, HEALTH sponsors contests (Take the Stairs Challenge, 100 miles in 100 days, and Get FIT Pembroke), acts as a resource helping to refer UNCP employees to other wellness organizations, and providing free, group fitness activities.If you have additional ideas as to how HEALTH can help improve your wellness, please feel free to contact us.
