UI Wellness is the staff and faculty wellness program at The University of Iowa, and a partnership of Organizational Effectiveness and UI Benefits (Human Resources).

UI Wellness provides health promotion services to enhance the health of the organization and its employees. These health promotion efforts are comprised of awareness and education activities, behavior and lifestyle change programs, and the creation of supportive environments. A Personal Health Assessment (PHA) survey is the foundation of programmatic efforts, providing a tailored feedback report on health status and associated resources for faculty and staff members who complete the survey. One time per calendar year, eligible faculty and staff are encouraged to take this voluntary, 15-minute, online survey during work time. Aggregate data collected from the PHA provides the University with useful information to make sound decisions on health improvement programming to support health and productivity on campus. Health promotion is an investment in our human resources.
