What is National Eating Healthy Day?
In 2010, the American Heart Association launched an ambitious goal to get our nation on the road to better heart health. Because workplace wellness programs are a proven strategy to prevent the major modifiable risk factors for cardiovascular disease, National Eating Healthy Day was established to help employees get healthy and stay healthy. When UK employees make a pledge to improve their health, it helps the university and our country. By 2020, the American Heart Association wants to improve the cardiovascular health of Americans by 20 percent and reduce the deaths from cardiovascular diseases and stroke by 20 percent.
*Only University of Kentucky employees, retirees, spouses, and sponsored dependents are eligible for UK Health & Wellness services and programs.
