Wellness Ambassador Responsibilities

Being a Wellness Ambassador is voluntary, but we do require a minimum commitment of approximately 1 hour per month to become an ambassador. We ask that you let your supervisor know that you are a Wellness Ambassador and will need to commit to the minimum 1 hour per month requirement.

Ambassadors also need to attend quarterly lunchtime meetings that will be announced accordingly.
