Wellness at Work

UA employees engaging in wellness activities

The journey towards good health and well-being is often very personal, but that doesn’t mean you have to travel alone! Often, we need encouragement and shared experiences with others. When we share our experiences with others, we promote a culture that celebrates and inspires others to focus on and contribute to their total well-being.

The Role of Wellness Ambassador

Wellness Ambassadors advocate for their unit's wellness needs with Life & Work Connections, help share wellness services of interest to their colleagues, and invite co-workers to participate in wellness activities. In doing so, they personify each of the University's values of integrity, compassion, exploration, adaptation, inclusion, and determination. 

"The activities organized by our ambassador have been so awesome. They've helped me to regularly build time in to address my own personal wellness, and I feel like they also help the college be a stronger team."

— Paige Hacker Bravo, Nurse Simulation Specialist, College of Nursing
