Changes to Go for the Gold for 2011by Stacey Kendrick Jul. 25, 2011, 3:17 PM
Completing Go for the Gold yearly will help you evaluate your current lifestyle, identify health risks, and decide where and how to make improvements. Use the personal recommendations you get to set your own goals based on what is important to you.
What can you expect this year?
- A revised Wellness Actions Log (WAL). The big change you will notice relates to the Wellness Categories Weight, Physical Activity and Blood Pressure, which require participation in Health Plus programs, specifically Know Your Numbers and Start!.
Health Plus provides Know Your Numbers locations for individuals on the main campus and at off-site locations, and for departments by request. Learn more.
Be sure to view the WAL soon, so you have plenty of time to complete it. Remember, you only need to complete 7 out of the 10 categories to get credit for completing the WAL.
A new Game Plan for Your Health video focusing on prevention, with a playful twist.
- An easy way to check your own Go for the Gold completion status by logging into the Health and Wellness Information Portal at https://myhealthandwellness.vanderbilt.edu.
