Do You Have The Winning Numbers? 

KentuckyOne Health employees in the Louisville area: The KentuckyOne Health Wellness@Work Committee wants you to participate in the Know Your Numbers Incentive Program. The program measures your key health numbers – like blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol – and tracks them from year to year.

If you had your numbers checked last year, the deadline for having them rechecked so you can enter this year’s prize drawing is March 29! Employees who have improved by at least 10 percent on three or more numbers, or maintained all their numbers in the healthy range, will be entered into drawings for great prizes like iPads, Fitbits and gift cards!

If you didn’t participate in Know Your Numbers last year, now is the time to start. You can have your numbers checked – for free – at one of our Know Your Numbers checkup sessions (click "read more" for the schedule). If this is your first time participating, we will be doing drawings for Fitbits or gift cards for every 100 people who participate in Know Your Numbers.
