For those who have not done so, all Canisius employees are encouraged to complete the heath assessment questionnaire.  Participation in previous health initiatives is NOT required.  The confidential assessment provides information that will help Independent Health identify programs that best meet the health needs of the college community.  Please note that the college never receives individual health information.

The wellness initiative is important to everyone.  This is evidenced by the generosity of campus individuals and Independent Health.  Everyone completing a health assessment will be eligible to enter three drawings: four tickets to the Sabres vs Montreal on February 17; five personal training sessions with Chuck Pelitera, assistant professor of physical education, health and sport study; or ride time on the Department of Public Safety’s Segway. (The winner will not be required to patrol the campus).  To be eligible for the drawing, please complete the health assessment by February 14, 2012.

In addition to the prizes listed above, the Department of Athletics has generously offered a gift four free tickets to the Canisius Men’s Hockey Game (Canisius vs Mercyhurst) on Friday, February 24 at 7 p.m. in the Buffalo State Sports Arena OR four free tickets to the Canisius Women’s Basketball final game (Canisius vs Siena) on Sunday, February 26 at 2 p.m. in the Koessler Athletic Center for anyone who completes the health assessment questionnaire.  Tickets for the hockey game may be picked up at the ticket table with a Canisius ID card; tickets to the women’s basketball game may be picked up at the Will Call Window with a Canisius ID card.

For those who are Independent Health participants, please click here for instructions on the assessment. The link to the website is listed below the instructions.  Paper copies are available from the Office of Human Resources, which can be sent directly to the Wellness Department at Independent Health.

Thank you for support of this initiative… benefits all of us.
