Invest In Yourself Event - 2018

Thank you to all who joined & participated!

Educational content from speakers is provided below for anyone who missed this event.
Points for participation will be visible in the Be Well UC portal in the first week of March.

Invest in Yourself is an event intended to educate and support our faculty and staff on two tenets of the Be Well UC program: Feel Well and Save Well.  With the notion that when you Invest in Yourself, you get paid back with health, wealth and happiness.  Sessions and resources are provided in a “mini-event” half day format, with all opportunities being in “bite-size” style – employees can drop in, learn what appeals most to them, and get back to their workday.  We welcome individuals or entire departments to join us for the event.
We look forward to seeing you there and invite the entire UC community to join us.

Join us next year for:

  • Educational sessions.
  • Prize drawings and giveaways.
  • Opportunity to learn about wellness.
