Move. Eat. Think. Be well. That's the motto of the NNPS Wellness Program.

We all know that our health is the most important asset we have. But despite our best intentions, we do not always do what we should to maintain - or improve - our health and wellness.

Beginning in August 2014, NNPS partnered with Viverae to launch the NNPS Employee Wellness Program. Viverae is a leading provider of wellness services; they help us coordinate our program by providing guidance, and a fun and engaging experience for each participant through a secure website that offers a variety of health tools, nutrition and physical activity trackers.

Our daily lives are filled with constant messages about healthy eating, weight management, and physical activity. We all know what we should be doing. The goal of the NNPS Wellness Program is to provide the tools and resources necessary for you to improve or maintain your health.

Joining the NNPS Wellness Program or continuing your participation is free and your participation can save you money on your monthly health insurance premiums.

More information about the current components of the NNPS Wellness Program and frequently asked questions are available below.

All benefits eligible employees are encouraged to check it out. With your participation, we can all move, eat, think and be well, and hopefully, have some fun on our way to better health and wellness.
