In 2008, the state mandated that all universities and community colleges implement a worksite (employee) wellness program with the focus areas of healthy eating, physical activity, stress management and tobacco cessation.

In 2011, UNCG and HealthyUNCG invited fellow North Carolina universities and community colleges for a one day workshop to identify resources, set goals and discuss strategies, successes and barriers to making our respective campus bodies one that is healthy and well. The conference was held again in 2015 and has since become an annual two day conference. 

Mark your calendar to attend this two-day conference designed specifically for university and community college professionals and students who are interested in improving the wellbeing of their employees. Join others in the field who share your passion for worksite wellness to discuss strategies for creating a thriving wellness culture, brainstorm through challenges, share resources and network. Jointly provided by HealthyUNCG – UNCG Employee Wellness and Northwest Area Health Education Center (AHEC), a program of Wake Forest School of Medicine and part of the NC AHEC System.

Our 2020 and 2021 event was cancelled due to COVID-19. We are hopeful and excited to plan our 2022 event. 

Registration coming soon!
