Weight Watchers at Work Fall Open House – Sept. 10Posted Sep. 9, 2013
As part of the OneWellU program, Kent State University offers the convenience of attending Weight Watchers at Work meetings during your lunch time.
The Weight Watchers at Work program will hold its open house on Sept. 10 from noon – 1 p.m. in the new meeting location at Heer Hall, 635 Loop Road on the Kent Campus. This is a great opportunity to learn more about the program and experience a weekly meeting without any commitment.
There is a discount for Kent State employees who enroll in either of the two weight loss offerings listed below:
Weight Watchers Meetings with Monthly Pass
The monthly pass is a good choice for employees at any Kent State campus who want to try Weight Watchers but do not want a lengthy commitment. The monthly pass gives you greater control and flexibility to determine what works best with your schedule. You can attend an “at work” meeting or take advantage of unlimited access to meetings in your community. You will also be able to use e-tools to track weight, find great recipes and more. The monthly cost for a pass is $39.95, which is discounted from the price you would pay if you enrolled at a community meeting. Weight Watchers at Work sessions are offered on the Kent Campus, every Tuesday from noon to 1 p.m. in the Heer Hall Training Room.
Weight Watchers Online
Employees may choose to follow the Weight Watchers program entirely online for a monthly cost of $19.95.This gives faculty and staff the convenience of following the program at their own pace, from any location. There are tailored websites for men and women, interactive tools to track eating habits and activity, and access to more than 1,500 recipes.
Should you decide to enroll for either the monthly pass or eTools, visit the Weight Watchers online portal at https://wellness.weightwatchers.com/Employees/Employeelogin.aspx.
You will be asked to provide the following company information:
Company ID: 20894

The portal contains information about Weight Watcher product offerings, meeting locations and payment plans.
Are you a Medical Mutual Enrollee? You may be eligible for an additional incentive.
The incentive program for employees who have medical coverage through Medical Mutual of Ohio will continue for employees who sign up for the monthly pass. Members will receive a $50 reimbursement for attending 11 weekly meetings in a consecutive three-month session with proof of payment (for the monthly pass).
