Survey Reminder; UT to Launch Health and Wellness Initiative
Faculty and staff are reminded to complete the health and wellness survey distributed last week.
A survey reminder was sent out on Monday, March 4, through an email from the College of Social Work’s Center for Applied Research and Evaluation.
The purpose of the survey is to help the university launch an employee health and wellness initiative by learning about employees’ health behaviors, risks, and interests in terms of health and wellness activities. Work site health and wellness opportunities have been shown to increase employee health and well-being.
The survey is voluntary and anonymous. Participants will have the option to be entered into a drawing for an iPad mini.
The employee health and wellness initiative is being developed under the guidance of the VOLwell Committee.
Members of the committee include Susan Martin, provost and senior vice chancellor for academic affairs; Vickie Niederhauser, chair of the VOLwell Committee and dean of the College of Nursing; Peggy Pierce, assistant professor in the College of Nursing; Katie Morgan, clinical instructor of nursing; Karen Lasater, clinical assistant professor of nursing; Mike Stahl, professor of management; Eric Martin, lecturer of accounting and information management; David Bassett, professor of kinesiology, recreation, and sports studies; Eugene Fitzhugh, associate professor of kinesiology, recreation, and sports studies; Dixie Thompson, associate dean and professor of kinesiology, recreation, and sports studies; Laura Miller, assistant professor of communication studies; and Rosa Thomas, coordinator at the Safety, Environment, and Education Center.
