Here is an update for this year’s Be in the Know campaign steps:  

STEP 1: Submit biometric screening results
Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, we will not be scheduling additional on-campus biometric screenings this campaign year. To earn credit, you can submit your screening results from your healthcare provider obtained between July 1, 2019 and June 30, 2020. Simply complete a Biometric Screening Consent Form and submit it with your results to AREUFIT by July 31, 2020.

STEP 2: Take StayWell’s online health assessment
After your biometric screening, be sure to complete the online health assessment available on Penn’s wellness portal by June 30, 2020. In 10 minutes, you’ll get a personalized health status report and recommendations to help you achieve your wellness goals.

The biometric screening and online health assessment are the two Core Actions required to earn your first 100 points and $100.

STEP 3: Keep earning with Bonus Actions
Select any number of wellness activities and earn up to 200 Bonus Action points for an additional $200* in cash incentives. 

Go for ultimate rewards by earning 350 total campaign points to become a Be in the Know VIP. VIPs receive a special gift on top of the maximum cash incentives.

Find a list of all qualifying Bonus Actions on Penn’s wellness portal.

You can complete Bonus Actions any time during the campaign year (September 1, 2019 – June 30, 2020). However, cash incentives for Bonus Actions will not be awarded until you complete STEPS 1 and 2. Also, make sure you receive your Bonus Action points by submitting a Proof of Bonus Actions Form, when required, by July 31, 2020.
