Dear colleagues,

You are warmly invited by the Human Resources Department to attend the Annual Wellness Fair, which will be held on 30-31 August and 01 September 2016 at Jameson Hall, Upper Campus.

We believe that individuals can play more meaningful roles in promoting their own health, preventing their own and their families' illnesses, and participating positively in the treatment of such illnesses when they arise.

The fair will run from 10:00-14:00.The health risk screening and massages will run from 09:00-15:00 daily.

This is an ideal opportunity for staff to gather information from a variety of health and wellness specialists that can have a positive impact on your lifestyle and well-being.

A number of exhibitors will be providing interactive demonstrations to give you a hands-on opportunity to have fun while you learn. Some of these activities include head and neck massages; screening for blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes, body mass index, HIV and psychological distress; and eye screening.

Your health is vitally important to us. I encourage you to take part in the Annual Wellness Fair; please find details here. Together we can make the University of Cape Town the healthiest university and workplace in South Africa.

Bookings for health screening and massage therapists can be made by e-mail or telephone to Ms Gaynor May on extension: 3519, before 30 August 2016. Health screening and massage times will be from 09:00-15:00.
