Welcome to Living Well, YSU’s Employee Wellness Program!  Living Well aspires to increase employees knowledge about the relationship between lifestyle and health.  The program will educate and empower employees to help make healthy choices that promote a healthy lifestyle.


Youngstown State University will provide a proactive wellness program to employees by creating an environment that will help to improve their health and health behavior patterns and produce tangible improvements in their use of health care services, reduce health-related costs, and enhance well-being.


The mission of the wellness program is to improve the health status of employees and their spouses/partners by providing opportunities, resources, and support to encourage healthy lifestyle choices.YSU employee wellness American Heart Association

Become a Living Well “Wellness Champion”!

YSU Living Well is recruiting volunteers to serve as Wellness Champions. Your main responsibility as an ambassador of Living Well is to share wellness program information and encourage others to engage in Living Well.  Being a Wellness Champion is a great opportunity to assist with YSU employee wellness initiatives and to help build a wellness culture on campus.  The time commitment in the Wellness Champion role is minimal and you do not need to be in optimal health. The requirements are a strong interest in making a difference and to be enthusiastic about improving the health of others.

If you would like to join us and become a Living Well “Wellness Champion” please review the attached Wellness Champion Guide. Please then fill out the Wellness Champion Pledge and submit the form to Carrie Clyde, Wellness Coordinator by Thursday, April 30, 2015.  Thank you for considering this important and integral position with Living Well.  We look forward to kicking off the first YSU Living Well “Wellness Champion” initiative!
