myWellness Tracker with PEHP

The University has partnered with PEHP to offer full-time DSU faculty & staff (and their spouses) a new wellness benefit in 2021, called myWellness Tracker.

The new fiscal year starting also means a new plan year for you to participate in PEHP’s myWellness Tracker.

The new challenges and new point levels are now in place, so be sure to set up some wellness goals for you to accomplish in this new fiscal year and earn yourself a rebate for participation.

There is information about this program within NEOED Onboard, under the “Wellness Portal”, as well as online at https://www.pehp.org/mywellnesstracker. Sign up today!

We hope you (and your spouse) will take advantage of this new program. Please email mywellnessjan@pehp.org if you have any problems registering.
