UHS Health Workers help create a culture of health and wellness across the UC Berkeley campus!
The Health Worker Program is a peer health education program dedicated to promoting healthy personal and residential community practices, including self-care, risk management, and use of UHS health care services. Health Workers work individually and as part of a team, and typically serve for 1-2 years in their residential or academic community.

Gratitude is a powerful tool! We asked some Tang Center staff and student Health Workers to call someone they were grateful for and tell them why. Get your tissues handy for these emotional and uplifting stories!
