Come and Learn More About Your Kent State Benefits

On Monday, Oct. 15 the Division of Human Resources will host our annual Open Enrollment and Wellness Fair in the Kent Student Center Ballroom from 9 a.m.-3 p.m.  I am sure the first thought that may come to mind is why do I need to go to this?  Most importantly, you will have an opportunity to be more informed about your benefits as a Kent State employee.  All of Kent State University’s medical and financial vendors will be available to answer any questions you may have about your options as an employee.  We will also have Benefits staff with computers on hand to assist with any Open Enrollment questions or issues you may have (Open Enrollment is Oct. 14-26).

In addition, we will have several wellness opportunities available to you throughout the day.  University Health Services is holding a flu shot clinic, the Department of Recreational Services will be available to provide information on faculty/staff memberships, the College of Podiatric Medicine will be doing on-site foot screenings, the Center for Health Promotion will have an interactive drinking and driving demonstration and a lot more!

Now that we’ve talked about all of the important stuff, let’s talk about the free goodies!  The first 500 people to arrive will receive Kent State totes full of goodies and free samples from our LIVE healthy cooking demonstration.  We are also giving away a lot of great raffle prizes, including designer sunglasses, an iPod shuffle, a Sonicare toothbrush and lots of gift cards!

I am looking forward to seeing you there!

P.S. We will also have a live demonstration of an exciting American Heart Association event coming to Kent State University on March 16, 2013!  Wonder what it is?  Come see for yourself!
