“This program has helped numerous members of our community reach their personal health and well-being goals,” said Dane Friend, chief human resources officer for BCM. “By using innovative technology and internal partnerships, we have been able to successfully lower our overall health risks as well as reduce healthcare-related costs for both our employees and the College. As we continue to expand as an institution, it is essential that we continue to provide these resources to support our employees as they work to carry out the mission and vision of the Baylor College of Medicine.”
BCM also collaborates with Vitality Group, a global leader in corporate health and wellness, to offer the Vitality program to Texas employers to improve the health and wellness of their employees.
