Invest in Yourself is an event, hosted by Be Well UC and UC Benefits, 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 “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.
