After reviewing the results of the Readiness to Change survey, Canisius and Independent Health are excited to present the “Healthy Weight Healthy Me” program.  This eight week program is a self-driven program, designed to give Canisius faculty and staff the accountability and resources needed to successfully achieve a healthy weight. Throughout the program, participants will learn to incorporate specific strategies to create positive lifestyle changes.

Participating in the program is easy.  The first step is attending the initial individual consultation to receive a Healthy Weight Healthy Me Kit and be weighed to obtain initial numbers.  A representative from Independent Health will be on campus Tuesday (February 28) and Wednesday (February 29) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Grupp Fireside Lounge for these 10-15 minutes consultations.

To ensure that Independent Health brings enough kits, please contact Dawn Rotterman at Ext. 3151 or Email to participate.  Employees do not need to sign up to participate in the program.  Appointments are not needed for the initial consultations.

After registering with Independent Health, participants will receive weekly Emails with tips to help everyone stay motivated.  A representative from Independent Health will return within four weeks to weigh participants and review progress, and again at eight weeks for a final weigh.  And, everyone completing the program will be entered into a drawing for some fabulous prizes!

Please note that the college never receives individual health information.
