Get well at wellness expo

30 October 2006

The Organisational Health Section of the Human Resources Department has invited Discovery Health to offer a Wellness Expo for all staff at UCT. This expo will take place on October 30 and 31 at the UCT Sports Centre on upper campus. It will run from 10h00 to 15h00 on both days. At the expo, staff will be taken on a journey of healthy lifestyle choices that include stress management, nutrition, physical activity, confidential health screenings (body mass index, blood pressure, glucose and cholesterol), a health risk assessment (staff will receive an instant confidential report), and a personal Virgin Life Care fitness assessment (bookings must be made before the event through Ashley Taylor, organisational health and wellness advisor, on 650 2154). Vitality members can use this event to boost their points. Staff members will leave the event with a confidential report of their current lifestyle habits and health risks. The Human Resources Department will be using the overall feedback from the day on UCT's health profile to suggest intervention strategies to combat identified areas of risk.
