The Pulse at Dartmouth Program

Join the Pulse at Dartmouth Program today!

Wellness at Dartmouth has partnered with a well-being organization affiliated with Richard Branson's Virgin Group to provide the new Pulse at Dartmouth program. This is an engaging and motivating program that will aim to continually maintain and improve the health of our community. The Pulse at Dartmouth program provides a comprehensive suite of personalized tools and support, including fun step-based MOVE IT challenges, activity, sleep and nutrition trackers, social connections, daily health tips, a personal health assessment, onsite Health Stations, and more! As a participant, you can:

  • Earn up to $400 per calendar year ($100 per calendar quarter; up to $800/family/year if spouse is eligible)
  • Receive one free MAX™ Activity and Sleep Tracker device, or a one-time credit of $24.99 towards the purchase of another device, that will synchronize your activity with the Pulse program (all credits applied after checkout)

The Pulse at Dartmouth program is open to all active benefits eligible employees (including those who have waived coverage).  It is also open to spouses who are enrolled on the employee's Dartmouth College health plan.  For more details on eligibility, view the Frequently Asked Questions list here.
