Health & Wellness Task Force
In the fall of 2006, a discussion took place regarding medical benefits. There was a strong feeling that Grand Valley needed to look at all our options to minimize, as best we could, the rapidly escalating cost for health care. That included establishing a commitment to wellness. Many believed it was an important time to get representatives from across the campuses - who share an interest in health, wellness, and keeping our benefit costs affordable - together to make recommendations to the University leadership on these topics.
Initially, this task force was charged with developing a vision statement, taking a comprehensive look at where GVSU spends its benefit dollars, planning strategies to address areas of health and wellness that will have a positive impact on our community, and a positive return on investment. Finally, the task force developed strategies and timelines to implement health and wellness initiatives and programming.
