Wellness Committee

Formed in the spring of 2013, the UF and UF Health Wellness Committee aims to provide enhanced wellness opportunities for employees of both organizations while exploring potential opportunities to maximize shared resources and expertise.

The committee seeks to promote current wellness opportunities while developing collaborative wellness initiatives that foster a healthy community and improved employee well-being.  Our vision is to model a culture of health through collaboration and implementation of evidence-based practices to provide a comprehensive wellness program that supports employees in reaching their highest potential and manages healthcare costs.
