If a participant’s Body Mass Index (BMI) is over 25, WorkLife Programs will pay for half of the $186 class fee if participants attend 14 of 17 weigh-ins. Those who do not complete at least 14 weigh-ins will receive a bill from Purdue’s Accounts Receivable for $93. Participants are only eligible for one incentive in their lifetime. To calculate BMI, visit http://www.nhlbisupport.com/bmi/.
At the first information session, participants will register, meet their leader, get information about the session and write a check to Weight Watchers for $93. Weight Watchers leaders will record participants’ weight on their cards and indicate who completes 14 of 17 weigh-ins. Weigh-ins can be at any official Weight Watchers meeting, including campus meetings, local or global community meetings, and the new location - Tower Corners Weight Watchers Center, 977 S. Creasy Lane, Lafayette. Participants who have received the incentive for the 17-week program and wish to participate in additional sessions will pay Weight Watchers for the full amount, $186.
