Building a Healthy Lifestyle, One Choice at a Time

Choose Well is UC Merced's wellness program for faculty and staff. Working in partnership with Human Resources, Student Health Center, Campus Dining, Facilities, Campus Police, Environment Healthy and Safety and Campus Recreation, Choose Well strives to build a campus culture that encourages healthy lifestyle choices that improve the overall health and well-being of its faculty and staff. This is accomplished through the delivery of incentivized programs and services designed to reduce injury, illness and stress, increase stamina, create a healthy lifestyle on and off the job and foster a healthy work environment.

Wellness is a state of being healthy in body and mind, not just the absence of disease. Choose Well is an incentivized program that promotes responsibility of ones health through daily choices of proper nutrition, exercise, and overall habits that promote healthfulness. By making small, simple changes to your daily eating and activity choices, you can start building habits that will positively affect your health.

Participants in Choose Well are rewarded for participation in planned activities, program attendance, and goal attainment.
