The University of Minnesota is committed to providing an environment where employee wellness and overall well-being are a priority, and all employees have the support they need to be well. No matter your wellness goal, whether it’s to lose weight, reduce stress, manage a chronic condition, or maintain your health, the Wellness Program offers a way for you to achieve that goal.

As part of our Wellness Program, we want you to learn more about your current health and well-being. The University of Minnesota offers an annual health and wellness program, with resources to support you in your destination to be healthy.

Residents, fellows and interns enrolled in the University’s HealthPartners health plan will have access to the following opportunities:

Biometric Health Screening
Gain a better understanding of your individual health metrics such as cholesterol levels, blood pressure, and BMI by participating in a free biometric health screening. Free screenings on all campuses are available through Boynton Health. Learn more and sign up here

Use the results from your biometric health screening to complete your Health Assessment.

Health Assessment
As part of our annual health and wellness program, we want you to learn more about your current health and well-being. That’s where taking a health assessment comes in. This short, 15 minute health assessment will help you discover just how healthy you are.
