Health and Wellbeing at Michigan Tech

Michigan Tech deeply values health and wellbeing among its faculty and staff community. Husky Health is a free, voluntary, and confidential program that helps qualifying benefits-eligible faculty and staff learn helpful information about their health and wellbeing, encourages them to take steps to improve or maintain it, and earn monetary rewards of up to $450 for participating in Husky Health options. The goal of Husky Health is to encourage sustainable, healthy lifestyles that help prevent chronic disease and other health conditions, and manage rising healthcare costs. Additionally, Husky Health strives to provide faculty and staff with valuable tools and resources to support their emotional, social, and financial wellbeing.

Michigan Tech encourages and rewards faculty and staff to live a healthy lifestyle. Husky Health is a voluntary, financial incentive program available to all benefits-eligible Michigan Tech employees.
