What is a Wellness Champion? Wellness champions are more than just cheerleaders. They connect with and influence co-workers.  Champions will be able to understand and explain the wellness program to co-workers, to visibly participate in programs, to relate to the health challenges of co-workers, and to generate interest in the the program.  There are two tiers of Champion: Wellness Champion and Wellness Champion Pro!  Check out the goals below:

All Wellness Champions

  • Champions will help with promotions by distributing flyers and forwarding email communications to keep co-workers in the know about upcoming RebelWell events, challenges and opportunities.
  • Champions will provide feedback to help tailor programs to best fit faculty/staff needs.

Wellness Champion Pro

  • Champions will receive the necessary training and tools to help guide your colleagues to a healthier and happier lifestyle.
  • Champions may lead group walks, stretching exercises and other light fitness activities for small groups.
  • Champions will utilize resources available to host seminars, brown bag lunches, blood pressure checks, or screenings.
