Current & Upcoming Programs

Weight Watchers® at Work Series

The Weight Watchers® at Work Program offers PointsPlus™ – weekly meetings, confidential weigh-ins, and support from co-workers and Weight Watchers staff. This program addresses the issues that have always stood between you and losing weight, such as hunger, temptation, or just a bad day. You’ll learn to choose foods that keep you full longer so that you don’t eat for the wrong reasons, which means you can lose weight and keep it off.  If you are a benefit-eligible employee PNC Wellness will pay $100 towards the cost of the series, if you attend a certain number of meetings.  If you are interested in being a participant in the next series or would like additional information please call Kendra Gardin, Employee Wellness Coordinator, at 219-785-5519.
