Now Available โ€“ 

Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) is a large academic medical center, consisting of six hospitals with approximately 30,000 employees. VUMC Health and Wellness has three departments (Occupational Health, Work/Life Connections-EAP, and Health Plus) that engage employees with innovative programs to maximize productivity and well-being. The Health Plus program delivers programs that advance healthy lifestyle practices by helping employees establish foundations of well-being through our Koop award-winning health incentive program, lifestyle coaching and skill-building programs. As a result of recent geographic growth, Health Plus recently pivoted its program delivery to reach employees regardless of work location through on-site, pre-recorded and virtual programming. This session will provide an overview of how Health Plus promotes health in a diverse workforce, discuss strategies for seamlessly adapting programs to engage the remote workforce, and learn strategies to provide high level engagement programs to their workforce. This discussion can provide a starting point for successful development or translation of programs within a rapidly changing workforce.
The following programs will be highlighted:
1. Go for the Gold Health Incentive Program.
2. Skill-building programs to foster healthy habits such as healthy eating, engaging in physical activity, and a mindful approach to managing stress.
3. Risk reduction programs such as lifestyle coaching, diabetes prevention, and hypertension management.
4. Wellness Commodores as wellness champions at the department level.
