UT employees had the opportunity to learn about what it takes to live a healthy lifestyle at the J.J. Pickle Research Campus on Saturday.

The Commons Learning Center at the Pickle Campus and UT’s occupational health program, called HealthPoint, hosted the fair for employees. They offered chair massages along with resources that included information about nutrition and tips on dealing with sleep disorders. The event also included food samples and a prize raffle.

University Health Services was on hand to provide flu shots, which are offered at no cost to employees with the UT Select insurance plan. UHS will continue to offer flu shots at no cost to students and employees with certain types of health insurance until Oct. 20, or until vaccine supplies run out, at various locations on campus.
