Discover the benefits of answering the Call to Health with your spouse

“The best benefit [of Call to Health] is the time my wife and I spend together on evening walks as we get our steps or discuss what we’ve learned from watching informative videos [on the Call to Health website]. It is even an interesting topic at dinner to discuss one of the journaling or mindfulness [challenges] we might have done for the day.”

– Call to Health participant the Reverend Michael Sears

Like so many things in life, Call to Health is better if you share it with your spouse. When the Reverend Michael Sears and his wife answered the call, they discovered it not only brought them closer to each other but allowed their entire family to embrace a holistic approach to well-being.

If your spouse has medical coverage* through the Board of Pensions, encourage them to join you in answering the Call to Health. When you answer the call as a couple, you can

  • encourage one another;
  • motivate each other to stick with positive changes;
  • try new things together as a family; and
  • enjoy quality time with each other.

And, when your spouse completes Call to Health Level 1, they will receive a $100 Tango card that can be redeemed for gift cards from vendors that offer healthy products, or used to make charitable donations.

So what are you waiting for? Encourage your spouse to register on the Call to Health website and discover the benefits of answering the call together. As Rev. Sears described it, “Everyone is a winner. We grow healthier and more informed. We grow closer to each other. We get the benefits of great rewards and payoffs lasting a lifetime.“

*Call to Health is available to employees and their spouses with medical coverage through the Board of Pensions; it is not available to members enrolled in Triple-S, GeoBlue, or the Medicare Supplement Plan.
