Rocket Wellness is sizzling this summer!

Rocket Wellness will be visiting your department to help launch you into a healthier lifestyle! Each month a Rocket Wellness Ambassador will stop by a different department to share UT wellness events, tips, giveaways and more. This is also an opportunity for you to share with our ambassadors, ideas on how Rocket Wellness can help your staff adopt a healthy lifestyle. Rocket Wellness Ambassadors began their visits in July, and will continue the first week of every month. Look for us in your department soon!
