A brief description of the institution’s wellness and/or employee assistance program(s):

The Office of Human Resources has established the Lafayette Employee Wellness Program (LeWP), and intends to continue its ongoing efforts in advancing a culture of health and wellness promotion at the College. In partnering with Highmark Blue Shield, the College hopes to take advantage of Highmark’s Health Promotions, which integrates and coordinates population management programs across the entire continuum of care, including wellness, behavior modification, disease management, and care management.  Through these aspects, we look forward to engaging members, developing and evaluating programs, and supporting the modification of health behavior. Although we are initially partnering with Highmark Blue Shield, the College must be solely responsible for the ultimate success of this wellness program.
