Healthy Weight & Wellness
WCI is now providing a proven and innovative approach to improving employee health and lowering employer healthcare costs. Our healthy weight & wellness system measures body composition and metabolic rates to determine the exact caloric intake for each participant.
This program is now a member benefit! Each member organization may send one qualified employee through the full program at no charge (two free for employers with over 200 employees).
