Letter from Chancellor Tedd L. Mitchell, M.D. and First Lady Janet Tornelli-Mitchell, M.D.

Dear Texas Tech University System family,

From our experience as medical professionals, we prioritize health and wellness in all realms. We care for you like family and want to ensure each of you have an opportunity to partake in our Health + Wellness Initiative at the Texas Tech University System. Since launching this initiative in 2020, together we have embarked on the journey of integrating healthy choices and changes in our daily lives.  

Through the Health + Wellness program, we have several resources available to benefits-eligible employees. 

  • Wondr Health is a digital behavioral program that addresses the full continuum of mind and body wellbeing. Wondr teaches clinically proven weight-management skills and provides preventative-care solutions and mindfulness strategies to make favorable impacts on weight-related conditions, sleep disturbances, depression, anxiety and overall stress. This program is available at no cost to benefits-eligible employees, retirees or dependents enrolled in a HealthSelect plan.
  • Catapult Health Virtual Checkup connects you with a certified nurse practitioner who helps you complete an annual screening evaluation, including bloodwork and body measurements. Health care professionals can then use your individualized plan to take the appropriate steps forward. The cost of the checkup is covered at 100% by your HealthSelect plan.

Soon, you will be receiving communication from Wondr and Catapult Health with updates about the program and how you can gain access to the great benefits these resources offer.  

We are excited to have you join our Health + Wellness community and continue your health journey as a member of the TTU System family. Thank you for all you do for this community!
