BCM LIFE serves as the health and wellness program for Baylor College of Medicine students. BCM LIFE is committed to providing opportunities that allow students to learn about the seven dimensions of wellness (emotional/mental health, physical, financial, social, intellectual, environmental and spiritual), and how to nurture them. We partner with faculty, staff, as well as outside partners which allow us to host a variety of programming and events for our students on campus and off. In addition, BCM LIFE offers an incentive-based platform with Vitality, where students not only engage in BCM LIFE sponsored events and activities but also offers a wide variety of online resources that cover our seven wellness domains, all while competing for gift cards, Baylor merchandise and other incentives throughout the year.
What is Vitality?
Vitality is an interactive and personalized wellness program that makes it easy for you to live your healthiest life. Vitality serves as our incentive based platform where students are able to earn points by participating BCM LIFE programming, activities ranging from going to the gym to going to the dentist as well as engaging with the program online through a variety of education modules covering everything from positive thinking to maintaining a healthy diet. Every Baylor student is highly encouraged to activate their profile in order to be able to win our amazing prizes.
