Does Kent State offer a Weight Watchers at Work program? (01/28/2013)

Weight Watchers at Work is available again this year to faculty and staff of Kent State University. Weight Watchers recently launched a new program, built on its proven PointsPlus® plan and backed up with 50 years of helping real people in the real world lose weight. The new PointsPlus® program and e-tools are included in the Weight Watchers at Work program, providing a great way for employees to lose weight and still eat all the foods they enjoy.

The At Work program meets Tuesdays at noon in the Kent Student Center on the Kent Campus. Weight Watchers will host an open house to learn more about the program on Tuesday, Jan. 29, at noon in Room 310C at the Kent Student Center. With the new payment offerings, the At Work sessions run continually with no end date. However, a minimum of 20 members must be enrolled for each class session.

Kent State employees have the option of two discounted weight-loss programs:

The first option is a monthly pass for Weight Watchers meetings. This option gives faculty and staff a chance to try the program without making a lengthy commitment. In this program you can either attend “at work” meetings or a meeting held within your community.

The second weight loss option is the Weight Watchers online program. The online program is tailored to the employee’s schedule, allowing employees to choose his/her own pace for the program.

An incentive program is available for employees who have medical coverage through Medical Mutual of Ohio and sign up for the monthly pass program. Members are eligible for a maximum reimbursement of $150 per calendar year. There is no reimbursement for the online program.

The Weight Watchers mobile app is available with enrollment in either of these weight loss programs to help you with the program on the go.
