Well-being workshop

As part of its well-being program, the University System of Georgia will offer an information workshop April 17 at 11 a.m.

Register online at to attend the workshop via WebEx or in person in Room AB of the UGA Training & Development Center.

During the workshop, participants can learn simple strategies for well-being: how to get started; where to go to learn more about your well-being; what your focus areas and health activities should be; and how to earn well-being credits of up to $100 for participating in healthy activities.

Employees can earn well-being credits for many activities, including taking a health risk assessment, well-being coaching, tracking healthy habits, participating in local community events and other opportunities.

The well-being credit is only ­available to employees and spouses covered on a USG health care plan and will be paid to the participants in ­November. It is considered taxable income. Health ­information is confidential and will not be shared with the USG. Employees may participate in the program all year, but must complete activities by Sept. 30 and be a current employee at the time of ­payment to earn the well-being credit.
