Take advantage of ARHS’s many resources to help you improve or maintain your health. There is something for everyone! We can support your goals, whatever they may be.
Love Your Life (LYL)
Move towards better health through our Love Your Life outcomes-based incentive program. LYL promotes healthy living through behavioral, educational, and risk reduction activities. When you join LYL, you receive an individualized health summary based on a comprehensive Health Assessment and health screening including a multi-panel blood draw test and biometric screening. Afterwards, you’ll receive a Health Score and a Health Goal to work towards health improvement each year. All ARHS employees are welcome to join and can earn substantial rewards throughout the year for participation and meeting goals.
As a participant in our Love Your Life wellness program, you’ll have access to a variety of health resources from our partners at Interactive Health. Through Interactive Health, you can earn Wellness Credits, which can be used towards Health Savings Account deposits, membership or services at our Broyhill Wellness Center or the Avery County YMCA, or towards health/fitness merchandise sold online. You also have access to their Health Coaches, monthly webinars, Health Logs, Wellness Workshops, and so much more. Interactive Health makes healthy living attainable and health improvements achievable.
