HEALTHY YOU is a series of health management programs designed to help faculty and staff understand, improve, and maintain their health.
Boston College continues HEALTHY YOU with new programs designed to support you on your path to greater health and well-being, offered in partnership with Harvard Pilgrim Health Care and The Boston Consortium for Higher Education’s HEALTHY YOU program.
In 1995, BC, along with 15 other Boston-area colleges and universities, formed The Boston Consortium. One of the Consortium's initiatives is to keep the health care of its member institutions affordable and accessible by helping employees and their families get and stay healthy. This health management initiative is called HEALTHY YOU. The programs are completely voluntary and totally confidential.

The BC Cancer and Chronic Illness Support Group
This group is for Faculty & Staff Members of the Boston College Community whose lives have been touched by cancer and other chronic diseases. It is a place for the community member diagnosed with the disease to come for support. It is also for the individuals taking care of loved ones with cancer or any chronic illness. The group shares information, resources, and experiences, with an emphasis on wellness within a confidential and supportive environment.
