    The Healthy Boiler Program is a multi-faceted approach to overall well-being composed of five pillars (behavioral health, financial wellness, physical health, social wellness and work-life integration). The program provides care by offering cost-controlled benefits and easily accessible resources that help Purdue employees (and their families) across all campuses transform their lives into the healthiest, happiest versions possible.
