Healthy You

The hallmark of health and well-being initiatives at Boston College is Healthy You, a series of health management programs designed to help faculty and staff understand, improve, and maintain their health. Healthy You programs at Boston College are offered in partnership with Harvard Pilgrim Health Care and The Boston Consortium for Higher Education’s Healthy You program.

Background

In 1995, BC, along with 15 other Boston-area colleges and universities, formed The Boston Consortium. One of the Consortium's initiatives is to keep the health care of its member institutions affordable and accessible by helping employees and their families get and stay healthy. This health management initiative is called Healthy You. The programs are completely voluntary and totally confidential.

Advisory Committee

Committee members advise, plan, and sponsor Healthy You activities at Boston College to encourage faculty and staff to become more aware of health-related issues, lead healthier lifestyles, and in general enhance the culture of health at Boston College.

Your Privacy

Your participation in Healthy You programs is voluntary and strictly confidential. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) was passed by Congress in 1996 to protect your personal information from being inappropriately disclosed. All those who provide medical services (such as hospitals, doctors, insurance companies and health plan employees) have completed Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) training and are in compliance with HIPAA privacy guidelines. In addition, strict confidentiality and data security protocols are in place and adhered to by all healthcare employees.
