UF Health Exhibit Promotes Employee Wellness
This is the 7th Annual National Arts Program Exhibition for the University of Florida Health community. Once again Special Projects Coordinator, Tawana Brown, put on a fabulous show that celebrated the employees incredible artistic talents. Tawana brought this program to UF Health in 2011 and immediately knew that it was something special. This year 142 pieces were collected and displayed on moveable walls that grace the lobby of the Learning Resource Center Atrium on the UF Health Jacksonville campus.
The exhibit is sponsored in part by their Employee Wellness Program. The Wellness Program’s purpose is to create a positive culture of health and wellness for UF Health Jacksonville employees that encourages work-life balance and promotes an optimal environment for patient healing and satisfaction. The National Arts Program is certainly a perfect fit for hospitals when one considers the overall benefits to the employee caregivers of a health system. Not only is the show a benefit to the employees and their families but it is enjoyed by all patients and visitors that pass through UF Health.
We applaud the employees and their families for sharing their talents and displaying another facet of their lives with the broader community. The NAP exhibit has the potential to connect so many groups while honoring the artist participants. We are grateful that Tawana felt it was important to start the NAP exhibit tradition at UF Health seven years ago.
