Horizon BCBSNJ’s interactive wellness events can help you demonstrate your commitment to employee health in fun and educational ways.

Available Events

  • 3D Body Scans: In just 40 seconds, employees receive a visual report of their body’s statistics, including weight and body fat.

  • Adult Mindfulness Coloring Station: Employees can visit a mindfulness/stress relief station, where they can color a card or do origami, the Japanese art of paper folding. Employees can give the card to a colleague or put it in a paper frame (also provided) to keep. Origami samples are provided to assist participants.

  • Blood Pressure/Body Fat/Body Mass Index: Attendees receive personalized data that provides a snapshot of their overall health.
