The Mission of the RU Healthy Wellness Program is to create a culture of wellness at Rutgers by encouraging employees to incorporate preventive medicine, regular physical activity, and healthy living into their daily routine.


Preventive Medicine/General Health & Wellness
The United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommends the following periodic health screening examinations and tests for men and women to help prevent or detect heart disease, cancer, diabetes and other serious illnesses.  The recommendations are developed by an expert panel of primary care physicians (internists, family practitioners, obstetricians and gynecologists, and pediatricians), based on research that has shown these interventions improve patient outcomes and are cost-effective.  Given these recommendations are supported by the Federal Government, these tests are typically covered by most state and private health insurance plans.
