Healthier Princeton News
Volume 6, Issue 2, Winter 2010
Princeton University is more than a place of employment and education. It also offers lectures, readings, concerts, theater, music, films, exhibitions, athletic events, peaceful places of solitude and ways to stay fit and healthy.
Novel H1N1 Influenza Update
Over the past six months, University Health Services (UHS) worked collaboratively with several departments across campus, including Environmental Health and Safety, the Graduate School, Facilities, the Office of Communications and the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Students to treat and prevent novel H1N1 on campus. More than 600 students exhibited influenza-like illness (ILI) this fall. UHS put in place a system to monitor students self-isolating in their rooms, including provision of a “flu kit.” Students with high-risk conditions who contracted ILI were closely monitored and treated at UHS’ Inpatient Services. This system will continue as ILI remains on campus.
In addition to treating illness, UHS worked to vaccinate as many Princeton University community members as possible during the fall. UHS was required to distribute the vaccine according to Centers for Disease Control protocol. The distribution of the first doses of vaccine were limited to those in high-risk categories. Five clinics were held in the fall and a total of 2,271 vaccines were given. Another clinic took place on Jan. 8 that was open to the entire University community; approximately 1,200 vaccines were given.
Influenza-like illness is still widespread in New Jersey and members of the Princeton community are urged to continue protective behaviors: Get vaccinated if you have not already; cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze; wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based hand cleaner; and keep your hands away from your face. If you develop ILI symptoms, please go home and stay home until at least 24 hours after your fever is gone without the help of fever-reducing medicines. Graduate students who develop symptoms should call UHS at 258-3141. Employees who develop symptoms should call their personal physician. Employees who do not have a personal physician and who would like a list of physicians in the Princeton area should call Employee Health Services at 258-5035 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Further information about influenza for the entire campus community is available on the University’s H1N1 website.

Results of Fitness Events
Several fitness events were held in the fall semester in which many faculty, staff and graduate students “left their mark.”
On the Nov. 12 Strength/Endurance Challenge, each person had to do as many reps as possible on the barbell bench press with their bodyweight (men) or half of their bodyweight (women), followed by a three-mile run on the treadmill. The person with the lowest adjusted time was the winner. Finishing first among the men was Tyler Abrams GS. His performance included doing 10 reps with his bodyweight and then running three miles in 16:46 for an adjusted time of 15:56. There were no female faculty, staff or graduate students in this competition.
In the Rope Climb Challenge on Nov. 19, participants climbed 555 feet, the approximate height of the Washington Monument, on a rope-climbing machine. The men’s winner was Nick Kattamis GS, who bested John Furtado FS by four seconds. On the women’s side, Maia Reim from Princeton University Press finished first and Christina Peabody GS finished second.
On Dec. 3, a small but enthusiastic contingent of faculty and staff won the eighth annual Fitness Challenge by edging out a group of graduate students and the four classes of undergraduate students. Although this was the fifth year in a row in which the faculty and staff came away with top honors, it was the closest competition in the history of the event with the margin of victory being a mere three points, 79.0 to 76.0. The men’s winner was Nick Kattamis GS, followed by Marty Crotty FS and John Furtado. Nick and Marty each won two of the six activities in the event. There were no female faculty, staff or graduate students in this competition.
Tiger Trot for Hunger
On Nov. 20, we hosted the second annual Tiger Trot for Hunger that benefits the Crisis Ministry of Princeton. The Tiger Trot is a 5K run/walk around campus, where the entry fee is either a non-perishable food item or a monetary donation. We had a total of 163 people participate in the event as walkers or runners and more than 35 race marshals. The top three male faculty and staff winners were Chris Brock (18:28), Nolan McCarty (19:35) and Jim Barlow (21:44); the top three female faculty and staff winners were Andria Mirabel (22:52), Celeste Tini (24:36) and Elizabeth Tedesco (25:34). One of the largest teams was the Admission Office with 31 individuals. Most importantly, we collected large amounts of food and raised more than $200. Keep open the Friday before Thanksgiving in 2010 and join us.

Going Green with Health Care
It’s easy to “go green” with UnitedHealthcare and Aetna. If you are enrolled in a UnitedHealthcare or Aetna health plan, you can turn off the paper explanation of benefits (EOB) statements and/or claims letters. The steps for each insurance carrier are provided below.
For Aetna members: Once a member has established an account through Aetna Navigator, using the secure member website, the member chooses “Your Profile” and then “Paper Saving Preferences.” Then click on “Turn off Paper.” Aetna will send an e-mail notification when a new claim and/or new activity is posted to a member's Aetna account.
For UnitedHealthcare members: Once a member has registered for myuhc.com, the secure member website, the member selects “Account Settings,” then “Mailing Preferences.” Once the paper is turned off, UnitedHealthcare will send an e-mail to notify the member of a new posting to his or her myuhc.com account.
Child Care Resources
Princeton University’s Employee Child Care Assistance Program (ECCAP) is designed to help faculty and staff meet the cost of child care. ECCAP is being offered to all benefits-eligible faculty and staff, with pre-kindergarten-aged children who are currently in child care or will be enrolled in child care and whose total annual household income is less than $130,000. The maximum award for one child is $5,000. An additional $1,000 may be awarded for a second child; the maximum award per family is $6,000. The award may be used to offset the cost of most child care arrangements, from in-home care to licensed day care centers or providers. Applications are accepted throughout the year. Applications must be received by May 1 of each year in order to receive the full award amount. Applications received after the deadline will be pro-rated. Employees whose co-applicants, although eligible to work, are currently not working but are actively seeking employment, may qualify for the ECCAP for up to one year. For more information about this benefit contact the ECCAP coordinator at 258-9118 or view the program overview at the HR website, where you may print out an application (.pdf).
Princeton University also provides a faculty and staff assistance program, Carebridge, which may be useful in assisting faculty and staff members by providing child care resources and information as well as a national child care database that contains information on more than half a million providers in the U.S. A Carebridge child care specialist can be reached at 1-800-437-0911 or via their website (access code TW8AE).
Backup Care is provided through Bright Horizons and is available to all benefits-eligible faculty and staff and may be used when your regular caregiver is unavailable, your child or adult family member is mildly ill, school or daycare is closed, an adult family member is recovering from medical treatment, or you are traveling for work. Benefits-eligible faculty and staff members may receive up to 100 hours per year. The charge for in-home care is $4 per hour for up to three dependents and $2 per hour for center-based care. For more information or to register with Bright Horizons call 1-800-557-0847 or visit their website.
