Work Well

Wellness is something we all likely know we need to do, but often have a hard time finding the time to make it a priority.  The Work Well feature, a new component of Be Well UC, is designed to help facilitiate wellness opportunities within colleges and departments to help bring options "closer to home" and to help supervisors and managers demonstrate their awareness and support of a well workforce.
