Wellness Benefits & Incentives

Welcome to Your 2024 Health and Well-being Program

Our WHAM Committee partners with HealthPartners to bring you well-being resources to help you reach your health goals. Plus, you can earn rewards for participating. It’s a win-win! 

Watch this special kick-off message from President Rivera:

Macalester College is committed to support the overall health and well-being of employees and their families. It is our hope to reward healthy behaviors, such as building a relationship with your primary care physician, getting timely preventive care check-ups, completing health assessments and participating in online or on-campus wellness activities. Spouses and domestic partners on our health plan are also eligible to participate and earn rewards!
