Welcome to the Well ’Canes Weight Watchers Program. Congratulations on making the choice to partner with the University of Miami to improve your overall wellbeing.  We hope that Weight Watchers not only helps you in achieving your weight goal, but also gives you the skills to adopt new healthy habits that will last you a lifetime.  We hope that you will continue to focus on your personal health and wellness. 

The University of Miami wellness philosophy embraces a multi-dimensional strategy that not only enhances your physical health, but also helps to strengthen your relationships in and out of the workplace, community involvement, and financial wellness. At UM, we are committed to promoting employee health, healthy lifestyles and active participation in wellness programs offered through Well ’Canes.

Cost and Registration

Your benefits will support your Wellness efforts by reimbursing you 100% of the registration cost of your first 12 week session.  In an effort to continue supporting your Wellness endeavors, we will continue to reimburse you 50% of each concurrent successful completion of the 12 week session. The reimbursement costs of a “Weight Watchers” - type program are considered taxable income by the Internal Revenue Service.  The amount reimbursed will be included as taxable income in your paycheck.

The 12-week Weight Watchers program costs $165 for new members, and $155 for continuing and lifetime members.

Please bring your payment to the first meeting at the location of your choice below. No pre-registration is required. You can join sessions already in process and it will be prorated based on the number of meetings remaining in the session.

Remember, it’s never too late to join!
