SOU’s annual Employee Health and Wellness Fair will be presented from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 26, downstairs at the Stevenson Union. The fair includes the university’s yearly flu shot clinic.
Those who attend will be eligible for raffles, with various prizes provided by vendors at the event.
All employees are encouraged to participate in the once-per-year opportunity to connect with representatives of insurance plans through Providence, Moda, Willamette Dental, VSP (vision) and The Standard (life).
There will be investment and retirement planning specialists from TIAA-CREF, Fidelity and the Oregon Public Universities Retirement Plans. The OPURP representatives will answer questions about both the Optional Retirement Plan (ORP), which is a 401(a) plan, and the TDI 403(b) plan.
Information will also be available about programs including Healthy Team Healthy U, Weight Watchers and the Cascade Centers employee assistance program (EAP); the Rogue Valley Transportation District; the Service Employees International Union (SEIU); and the Association of Professors, Southern Oregon University (APSOU).
The free flu shot clinic, for employees currently covered under an SOU medical insurance plan, will be located in the front of the student union’s Arena Room.
