Virginia's state employees are doing what it takes to be active and well, yet, they can do more.
To encourage state employees to get and stay healthy, the Healthy Virginians program has put the following incentives in place:
• Informational Programs - State employees have access to health programs, special challenges, and other fun health-related initiatives. For more information, access www.commonhealth.virginia.gov.
• CommonHealth also provides onsite bi-annual health checks which tests an employees blood pressure, cholesterol and blood glucose.
• Walk 15. State employees are encouraged to use a daily 15-minute break for walking or other exercise.
• Free Online Tracking of Health Routines. State employees are encouraged to participate in the America on the Move™ walking program so they can record individual daily walk and exercise routines at www.americaonthemove.org.
CommonHealth is offered to all Virginia state employees who work at participating agencies and their covered family members over the age of 18 living in their homes. Retirees are also eligible to participate in CommonHealth.
