Coaching is a nonjudgmental way to approach wellness; it is designed to help identify behaviors that may need to be modified to improve a healthy lifestyle. Working with our Employee Wellness Director, you will identify a wellness vision and work toward goals specifically tailored to your own needs and objectives. Coaching is confidential and information is not shared with anyone on campus. Participation in coaching appointments does contribute towards the HPU Point Program.
