Nutritionist Wellness Initiative

Benefit Services invites you to participate in a new wellness initiative between Michigan Tech and Aspirus Keweenaw. This is an 8-week program that gives employees access to a registered dietician. The program includes:

  • One 60 minute initial individual consultations (in-person)
  • Two follow-up phone calls during weeks 2 and 4
  • One final consultation during week 8 (in-person)

The program is divided into two groups Nutrition Basics and Nutrition Enhanced. Nutrition Basics is designed for employees interested in paying more attention to foods they eat or employees that need guidance on where to start. Nutrition Enhanced is designed for those who have already made changes to their eating habits but need additional support. Employees may choose the plan that best meets their needs. For additional program information, please visit the wellness website.

This program is for active, benefits-eligible employees and will begin on March 13, 2017, and run through May 16, 2017. Space is limited to 30 employees. You may register for the program here. Employees new to the program will be enrolled first with returning participants being enrolled on a first come, first-served basis. Enrollment into the program will close at 5:00 PM on Monday, February 20, 2017.
