I am pleased to announce that the University of Florida and UF Health have collaborated to offer a joint Employee Wellness Event this spring.  From March 31 through April 25, UF and UF Health will offer their benefits-eligible employees free health screenings at locations throughout campus as well as at UF Health locations in Gainesville. Employees may participate in the event at any location, regardless of affiliation. To view a schedule with event locations, please visit http://gatorcare.org/wellness.

Employees who complete a biometric screening will have the opportunity to review their results with a wellness professional and will receive a free SweetBerries boxed lunch. Employees may register for a time and location of their choice online by visiting http://hr.ufl.edu/wellnessevent.

In addition, during the first and last weeks of the event, UF and UF Health experts will present workshops and demonstrations covering a range of topics including fitness, nutrition, emotional well-being, aging and more.  Employees are encouraged to “pick one window” to wellness and make one change to enhance their well-being.  To view the list of workshops, which continue to be updated, please visit http://gatorcare.org/wellness/workshops.asp.

All benefits-eligible Academic Personnel, TEAMS and USPS employees—as well as graduate assistants on appointment, postdocs and residents covered under GatorCare—may complete a free screening.  We hope you will support employees in their journey to wellness and encourage them to attend this event.
