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:

Tufts' current wellness program includes condition specific disease management, health risk assessment, behavior modification, intervention and re-measurement. The Tufts University health management initiative works with health plans’ wellness offerings, and the HR Benefits Office provides integration and coordination. The rational for this approach is based on the ready availability of diagnosis information to each plan and the linkage between the plans and their providers. Appropriate interventions include seminars that provide education and support to all segments of the University’s plan participants. This process is used to encourage longer term behavior change in identified areas of wellness opportunity.

Tufts Human Resources also administers the "Healthy @ Tufts" workplace wellness initiative.
