Employees invited to participate in program to reduce sugary drink consumption

From: Hokie Wellness

Hokie Wellness, in collaboration with the University of Virginia, invites employees to sign up for a no-cost wellness program called iSIPsmarter.

Drinking too many sugary drinks is related to chronic health problems such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, and cavities. iSIPsmarter is a research study that compares two web-based programs designed to help adults living in southwest Virginia decrease their consumption of sugary drinks. Participants will be enrolled in a nine-week program and can receive up to $200 in gift cards as well as a cellular-enabled scale valued at $110.

To learn more and sign up, please go to Once you complete the Interest Form, a member of the iSIPsmarter team will contact you to talk more about the program. You can also call Donna Brock at 434-962-5870 to learn more about the program.

The iSIPsmarter study is funded by the National Institutes of Health.
