Meeting minutes from the Health System Academic & Research Employee Council

June 16, 2005

The Employee Council meeting went on as scheduled this 16th day of June. 

The meeting was called to order by Helen Norfleet-Shiflett, council co-chair.

Jeff Ciucias, Clinical Programs Coordinator was the guest speaker.

Jeff started the meeting by discussing the Healthy Virginians campaign. This campaign is to encourage employees to stay and get healthy by participating in some kind of healthy activity. Some ways you can participate is to walk on your lunch break, walk to your car instead of taking the bus and taking the stairs instead of the elevators. It is recommended to do three, ten minute sessions of exercise a day. The health benefits usage is very high and with implementing a program to get people to stay and get healthy there would be less health benefit usage. To find out more information about the Healthy Virginian campaign you can go to http://www.hrs.virginia.edu/healthyuva/default.htm.  

In new business Helen and Johy will remain the co-chairs for employee council. If you have a new and or outgoing representative for your department please let us know.

There was no old business.

There were no committee reports.

 

The meeting was adjourned.
