Does the institution have an employee assistance or wellness program that provides counseling, referral, and well-being services to employees?:

A brief description of the employee wellness program, policy, or practice:

Miami University believes that providing work-site resources to support and encourage healthy lifestyles/behaviors for employees and dependents creates a foundation for individuals to pursue a higher quality of health which leads to long term increases in productivity and decreases in health care costs. Our healthy work environment offers access to the following onsite, no cost services: fitness programming (fitness room, group classes and personal training), ALA Freedom from Smoking classes, health coaching and healthy eating series facilitated by a registered dietitian, flu vaccine clinic and mobile mammography. Miami's health care plan provides 100% preventive care coverage ( implemented prior to healthcare reform), and 100% coverage for certain diabetes and asthma medication. Additionally, employees and spouses enrolled in Miami's health care plan may receive a premium discount for completing the following steps: health assessment, biometric screening, tobacco free certification or completion of ALA Freedom from Smoking class, primary care physician wellness visit, and age/gender appropriate preventive screenings (Breast Cancer, Cervical Cancer and Colon Cancer), and have access to an onsite convenient care clinic. The premium discount program has increased compliance with preventive screenings and increased participation/completion of the ALA Freedom from Smoking class. Employees sharing individual success stories have been instrumental in developing our culture of health.
The employee assistance program provides counseling, legal, financial and family services. http://www.units.muohio.edu/humanresources/documents/BenefitsWellness/LifeInsurance/EAPMyLibertyAssist.pdf
