“I had to read the email three times just to be sure it was real,” says Gerstler, a procurement agent in Finance’s Procurement Services. “I was elated to find out that I was one of the drawing winners. I participate in several of MHealthy’s exercise classes and I am an avid supporter of the program.”

Benefits-eligible faculty members and staff, and spouses or other qualified adults enrolled in U-M health plans and who completed the 2013 health questionnaire by March 29 were entered in the drawing.

“I’m getting married at the end of May so we will put these winnings towards our honeymoon trip to Jamaica, sometime next winter,” Gerstler says.
