University of Pretoria Corporate Wellness Programme Health Screenings

Posted on October 09, 2019

Dear UP employee

The UP Corporate Wellness Programme in partnership with internal departments of Physiology-Neuroscience and Exercise Group, Speech Language Pathology and Audiology will be continuing with wellness activities and screenings in 2019 on the UP campuses. This programme, available from February to October 2019, is open to all University employees who want to live a healthy life.  All staff, not only members of the two preferred medical aid schemes, are welcome to participate.

The Wellness Programme will provide UP staff with a range of wellness offerings throughout the year, including Health Risk Assessments (HRA), hearing, voice, balance, vision and lung function screenings offered on the UP campuses. Please ensure that you secure your online booking.

Please note that October will be last opportunity for staff members to participate in all wellness screenings, lunchtime talks and exercise activities for 2019, so register in time and participate in order not to miss out.

Available dates as published in each monthly communication will be opened on the day that the communication is distributed.

Please encourage and allow employees to make use of these valuable services free of charge. Staff members who do not have access to computers should ask their line managers to assist with online booking
