Wellness Ambassador: Info

What is a Wellness Ambassador?

Wellness Ambassadors help to promote a culture of health among faculty and staff. Anyone can be a Wellness Ambassador. We encourage colleagues in the same office to become fellow Ambassadors to help share the news and coordinate events. By joining the team, you can help others be more active, relieve stress, eat healthier and much more. You will be a key communicator, directing faculty and staff to Healthy for Life (HFL) programs, activities and resources throughout the University of Missouri (UM) System.

What do Wellness Ambassadors do?

Serving as a Wellness Ambassador is a voluntary role to advocate and guide faculty and staff to create a culture of health. While we recognize that not everyone has the same amount of time or skills, any and all efforts are vital to advancing the university's HFL program. Go to our Inspiration page to read examples of Ambassador activities.
