Workshops & Presentations

Wellness Challenges

Participate in one of our guided wellness challenges to create positive habits in a fun way. Improve your social wellness by organizing a challenge for your department to compete against each other or for your entire department to compete as a team against other departments.

Upcoming Events

Browse through these upcoming local events (both in-person and online options) and reach out to a friend, colleague, or family member to go together!

Random Acts of Kindness (RAK)

This is a great way to build camaraderie and cultivate a positive work environment. It serves as a reference guide so that when you want to do something nice for someone, you know what to do without asking!

Groups on The Bridge

Did you know the UF Health Bridge has hundreds of networking and support groups? Groups include, but are not limited to, Get up and go! Walk@Work, Breastfeeding/Pumping, LGBT Community and more!

Volunteer Gainesville

Volunteering can reduce your stress levels, improve your mood, and enhance your sense of purpose. Take a look at this list of community organizations that are in need of volunteers.

Gratitude Spreads

UF HR Wellness has created Gratitude Spreads materials for faculty/staff to share. Along with an encouraging design, there is space to write a dedication and personal messages on both printed cards and digital email templates.

Connect Outside

One of the best things about being in Gainesville is our access to the outdoors! Invite a friend to explore a new park, walk a trail, swim at the springs, or canoe down the river.
