What is a Wellness Partner?
Wellness Partners are representatives from departments across UF and UF Health who play a vital role in supporting employee wellness. Partners disseminate information, set up presentations, and encourage participation in wellness initiatives. Partners also provide valuable feedback to help the UF & UF Health Wellness Committee build a culture of health.
As a Wellness Partner, your time commitment will be about 2-3 hours per month. In addition to attending the monthly Wellness Partner Coffee Chat, you will also disseminate information to employees about upcoming events, answer basic questions about wellness events and resources, and help the Wellness Committee understand the needs of your population, providing feedback and suggestions from your area. Note: You do not need to be a GatorCare member to be a Wellness Partner. All UF/UF Health employees are welcome to apply.
