  • Assist in building a healthy campus by developing and implementing wellness initiatives and events on campus.
  • Help to improve the wellness program by providing continuous feedback to the UHCS Wellness Program.

  • Wellness ambassador is a voluntary role and is done in addition to other current responsibilities and course work.
  • A wellness ambassador should expect to spend anywhere from one to two hours a month acting as a wellness ambassador.
