Health Improvement Program (HIP)

The UMD HIP (Health Improvement Program) is one of UMD Employee Wellness Program's offerings in collaboration with the Employee Health & Wellness Center/Health Coaching. It is FREE and designed to help faculty and staff who are:

  • looking for a safe and effective health behavior change program,
  • striving to reach their optimal health, and
  • looking to improve nutrition and exercise habits as well as stress management and overall wellness.

The program is based on a three-pronged approach which encompasses balanced nutrition, result producing exercise and positive behaviors that will lead to healthy and active lifestyles.

HIP Members will have access to weekly optional workshops which will include:

  • comprehensive and easy to understand healthy eating and exercise guidelines from a qualified health educator, dietitian, and more
  • group discussions that will build support, confidence, motivation, and the commitment to achieve a new healthy lifestyle.
