Wellness Champions

To foster a culture of wellness within our community, we all must play a role. For some of us, that role could be to help promote wellness initiatives and resources within our work environment.

We are establishing a diverse and passionate group of employees who are helping us promote the value of our wellness program to their co-workers.  These employees are partnering with Wellness Connection to help us increase engagement in wellness program offerings and provide input on program design and communication.

Please review and complete our Wellness Champions Partnership Agreement. This is a non-binding agreement, but it communicates the importance of the Champion’s role in accomplishing our goals and objectives.

A WashU Wellness Champion is someone who is passionate about living a healthy lifestyle and excited about providing motivation and support for their coworkers. If this sounds like you, we would love to hear from you! If you have questions or suggestions, feel free to contact Emily Page at wellnessconnection@wustl.edu or 314-935-3654.
