Wellness & Integrative Health
We want to improve health.
As an academic health care system, we are charged with finding solutions to the health and wellness challenges of our communities both on campus and beyond.
We support health care professionals to embrace healthy behaviors, to lead by example and to work with individuals and the community who can, in turn, take responsibility for achieving better health for themselves and their families.
Collaborating across the University of Utah campus, we support training the next generation of health and wellness professionals and contributing to the evidence base for the health-promoting value of wellness programs.
Our current priorities include supporting personal resilience and well-being in our faculty and staff; advancing population health initiatives, like diabetes prevention; integrating health coaching into primary care practice; and promoting healthy environments at work, at school, and in the community.
Improving health is everyone's responsibility. Come learn about what we are doing. Challenge us. Share with us.
