Giving VCU employees the wellness resources they need to be healthy both on and off campus

The Commonwealth of Virginia and WW (Weight Watchers Reimagined) are proud to partner together to help you improve you well-being! The WW discounted pricing for employees enrolled in a state health plan is changing as of July 1, 2019. This special pricing is for VCU employees.
