Have you participated in the HDAE Wellness Program? Thanks to the support of our Associate Vice Chancellor Willie Brown, we have offered this program for 16 years. The Wellness Program’s main goal is to promote the health of employees by offering wellness resources. The program began in Fall 2004 with 174 career staff participating (44%). As of June 2020, there are 270 career staff participating (46%). The HDAE Wellness Program offers a variety of UC-wide events to virtual workout classes. Take a few minutes and complete this survey. Your feedback is greatly appreciated! If you haven’t participated in any Health & Wellness activities, here’s your chance! Join us for Homestretch Monday-Friday 9:30-9:45 am. All levels are welcome! Can’t make that time? Here's a quick workout you can do at home on your own time. For questions please contact Leslie at lesliecramirez@ucsb.edu.
