Wellness Champion Spotlight | Colorful Choices Team Captains

Eat a healthy diet and keep calories in check.

I’d like to recognize all of the Wellness Champions who rallied their teammates to join the new summer wellness challenge, Colorful Choices. Thank you for your leadership and your commitment to Wellness Connection and your colleagues. Your ingenuity, determination, and creativity are inspiring.

Approximately 900 WashU employees participated in the Colorful Choices campaign. The charts below demonstrate that while Champions made up 8% of all participants, they led the way as Team Captains: 36% of all team leaders were Wellness Champions:

A big thank you to our Wellness Champion network for supporting our 8IGHT Ways to Wellness evidence-backed strategy, and for encouraging your colleagues to be cognizant about their nutrition on a daily basis.
