ANNOUNCEMENTS

2021 PEBTF GET HEALTHY
The Get Healthy Know Your Numbers Wellness Screening is Back for PEBTF, Aug. 1-Dec. 31, 2021. Complete your wellness screening by Dec. 31, 2021, to qualify for the savings for July 1, 2022, through June 30, 2023. There will not be an on-campus event for 2021, as PEBTF is not scheduling onsite screening events at State System universities. There are other ways to complete your wellness screening, either at a Quest location, or by going to your doctor's office. Both options will require you to log into Quest Diagnostics through the PEBTF webpage:  https://www.pebtf.org/GetHealthy/.
