Does Kent State offer a Weight Watchers at Work program?
Kent State University is proud to offer Weight Watchers at Work to its faculty and staff. Kent State employees have the option of two discounted weight-loss programs:
- The first option is a monthly pass for Weight Watchers meetings. This option gives faculty and staff a chance to try the program without making a lengthy commitment. In this program, you can either attend at-work meetings or a meeting held within your community.
- The second weight loss option is the Weight Watchers online program. The online program is tailored to the employee’s schedule, allowing employees to choose their own pace for the program.
The “At Work” program meets Wednesdays at noon in the Kent Student Center, usually in Room 303. With the new payment offerings, the at-work sessions run continually with no end date. However, a minimum of 20 members must be enrolled for each class session.
An incentive program is available for employees who have medical coverage through Medical Mutual of Ohio and sign up for the monthly pass program. Members are eligible for a maximum reimbursement of $150 per calendar year. There is no reimbursement for the online program.
