eHealth Strategy Office is extremely proud and excited to be part of UBC’s Health Workplace Initiative Program this year. This program is part of UBC’s Focus On People initiative, giving funds to groups of employees to improve the health of their workplace community.
As health researchers, teachers, and students, we think it’s important that we ‘walk the talk’ of healthy living. Understanding that health takes many forms, our program is designed to improve our sense of support and community while focusing on three pillars physical health – staying active, eating well, and reducing stress. Join us as we document our progress in making our workplace a healthier place!
In conjunction with the program of healthy activities and education, we will also be sharing our efforts to evaluate the effectiveness of the program. We are very interested in working with other UBC departments to promote the program.
