Wellness Advisory Board

The Wellness Advisory Board (WAB) is a working group of staff and graduate and undergraduate student representatives from various departments and health interest groups on the UChicago campus. The group meets monthly during the academic year to collaborate on wellness projects and events, identify synergistic opportunities between departments, and develop strategies to promote health and wellness on campus. Board members also act as wellness liaisons, communicating and promoting well-being initiatives and events to their departments, encouraging a campus-wide culture of well-being and academic/life balance.
 
For more information about the Wellness Advisory Board or how to get involved, please contact Health Promotion and Wellness Director Julie Edwards.
