PRESBYbulletin The NEW Wellfocused Healthy Rewards Program This past open enrollment, UPHS launched a new point’s based Wellfocused Healthy Rewards Program, allowing employees to earn points year round for participating in activities and challenges as well as earn $150 reward by completing a Well-Being Assessment, Knowing Your Numbers and taking healthy actions. The $150 reward is available ALL YEAR LONG! This program allows you to create a personal profile, set health goals, and participate in fun and engaging challenges, all while improving your health and well being! The challenges and activities in the program focus on all aspects of health and well being and are designed for all employees, regardless of your health or fitness level. You can even create and your own challenges to help you reach your own personal goals – and earn points while doing so! How the Points System Works: For each activity, challenge, or action you complete, you earn points. As you accumulate more points, you move to higher levels of the program (First Steps all the way through Lead the Way), and get the opportunity to be entered into raffles to win rewards!

Looking for something new and exciting to eat? And healthy even?! The Atwood Café is featuring a new menu, including The Chief ’s Choice – a special sandwich now being offered for a limited time. Named after Jack Ende, MD, chief of Medicine at PPMC, the sandwich includes grilled chicken, smoked gouda, sautéed spinach, roasted red peppers, and pesto all on focaccia, served with tortilla chips and fresh orange slices. Dr. Ende won the right to create and name his own sandwich as part of the silent auction at the 2013 PPMC annual fundraiser. The new item has already become one of the most popular orders in the cafeteria and will be a feature on the menu for one year.
