Week of Wellness
As part of the Healthy Rice. Healthy Life. wellness program, Human Resources teams up with the Staff Advisory Committee to schedule a week full of events that encourage healthy habits and showcase the variety of wellness benefits available to all benefits-eligible Rice employees.
We are excited to present the schedule for this year’s Week of Wellness below. We look forward to helping you sponsor a healthier you!
Join us for our kick-off to Wellness Week at 2:00 on October 17 in front of Tudor Field House to Walk the Rice Mile. Our Women’s Track Coaches, Jim Bevans and Funmi Jimoh will share some educational and inspirational words and lead us on a walk around the inner loop. There will be FREE t-shirts for the first 100 participants and drawings for several FitBits.
Some activities associated with the Week of Wellness are first come, first served, and we welcome all on casual, walk-in basis. Some activities will require that you register or make an appointment. For example, flu shots are available on a walk-in basis (while supplies last), yet health screenings require an appointment. To check available screening appointments and to schedule yours, visit the Healthy Rice. Healthy Life website (click on “Screening” under the “To-Do List”), or call 1.877.916.5940, option 1. Some of the educational sessions require registration. See the “Week of Wellness Fair” flier below for details. If you have any questions, please contact us at 713-348-4663 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
