Here at UPA, we are proud and excited to be recognized as a Gold Status
organization by the East Tennessee Wellness Roundtable. This award is
sponsored by the Knox County Health Department and Tennessee Department
of Health, and is granted to companies that exemplify excellence in worksite
wellness by supporting a culture of wellness to improve the health and
well-being of their team members.
This culture of wellness has also qualified UPA to be recognized by the
Governor's Foundation for Health and Wellness as an official 2019
Healthier Tennessee Workplacedue.
In order to promote a culture of wellness, we offer free fitness classes
and swipe card access to our on-site fitness center to all team members,
as well as their spouses and dependents over the age of 18. For team members
who are unable to conveniently use the Cedar Bluff, personalized workout
program design and meal plan assistance is available.
UPA also encourages preventive exams and education. Team members can earn
a significant discount on their 2020 medical insurance by completing a
biometric screening with their primary care provider and the Cigna Health
Risk Assessment by September 30, 2019.
Lunch and Learn Videos
As we seek to provide wellness education to all team members, this website
will act as the primary platform for distribution of information. Medical
center lunch and learns will be provided below as they occur, to provide
learning opportunities about key aspects of wellbeing - from nutrition,
to sleep, to cancer screenings, to budgeting, to burnout.
