University faculty, staff invited to serve as Wellness Ambassadors
1:28 p.m., Jan. 3, 2013--The University of Delaware Office of Human Resources’ Employee Wellness Program invites UD faculty and staff to make 2013 a healthy new year by championing wellness in their departments and units as Wellness Ambassadors.
Interested employees are being recruited now. Ambassadors who complete a short application by Monday, Jan. 14, may attend an orientation meeting on Friday, Jan. 18, from noon-1 p.m. in the Collins Room of the Perkins Student Center.
“The key role of these volunteers is to lead by personal example,” says Kathy Corbitt, associate director, HealthyU Employee Wellness. “We know of many faculty and staff committed to a healthy lifestyle who are already sources of encouragement and inspiration to their colleagues. This new initiative is a way to support them and tap into their enthusiasm as a way of engaging more people in wellness activities.”
