The Auburn University Pharmaceutical Care Center will be a private weigh-in site for Auburn University employees who wish to participate in the Scale Back Alabama Challenge. A team will consist of two participants to join in the challenge. At least one team member should be an Auburn University employee in order to use the AUPCC location in the Harrison School of Pharmacy as their weigh-in and weigh-out location.

Those not located on the main Auburn University campus can visit the Scale Back Alabama website Jan. 6 to see if there’s a weigh-in site in their area. Many areas will have weigh-in sites that are open to the public.

This challenge is meant to encourage you and a team member to lose 10 pounds during the 10-week challenge but also encourage you to use this challenge as a launching point to make lifestyle changes for you and your family to begin 2015 with a healthier approach for a lifetime.There will be cash prizes offered at the sate level and if you participate in events or activities planned in the Auburn/Opelika area you can qualify for local prizes. Details about local events and activities will follow.

Appointments can be made by sending an email to hollite@auburn.edu. Weigh-in appointments will begin on Tuesday Jan. 20 and conclude on Friday, Jan. 23. The final weigh-out will be held during the week of April 6 – 12. Weigh-out times and dates will be announced later. Each team must weigh in and weigh out at the same location.
