About Us, Wellness

The University formed a Wellness Committee in August of 2008 to begin an active approach to engaging the University community in wellness through education, self-awareness, and various campus activities. This website is designed to be a valuable resource for information on wellness initiatives and activities available through the University of Hartford.

The wellness initiatives will offer health education materials, resources and a series of fun and valuable programs and activities aimed to help employees lower their risk of disease and improve overall health and well-being.

The Wellness Committee has six main goals:

  • Engage the University community in the wellness initiatives
  • Help employees identify their personal health risks
  • Encourage personal responsibility for health and wellness
  • Provide motivation and support to help employees make healthy choices
  • Control healthcare costs through disease prevention
  • Improve overall employee well-being

In conjunction with the University's medical insurance carrier, Aetna, as well as the University's broker, Chris Monroe, the Wellness Committee will lead these wellness initiatives.

In light of the ever-rising cost of healthcare we can all benefit from better health education and individual modifications that promote healthier lifestyles. We encourage all employees, whether participants Aetna or of other health plans, to join in these initiatives.
