Wellness at UMS

A message from Joanna Rosebush, the Manager of Health Improvement:

I’m very excited about my new role and look forward to visiting your campuses to introduce myself and discussing your current and future wellness goals. While developing the long-term strategic wellness plan, we’ll work together to design initiatives which optimize the health and well-being of the employees in your campus communities.

Let’s support a culture of wellness that provides evidence-based, results-oriented health promotion programs to improve the health, productivity and life satisfaction of our members. Let’s also develop programming which considers all dimensions of wellness for all employees and dependents of the University of Maine System community.
