What is MoveWell?

MoveWell brings together the vast array of existing physical activity programs UCLA already offers with the goal of extending their reach even further and increasing participation by students, faculty, and staff. In working collaboratively with diverse groups interested in physical health, we hope to inspire additional programming, increase educational opportunities about how to take the lead in improving one’s own physical fitness, and how to support one another in reaching these goals.

Have a question, concern, or an idea? We would like to hear about it!
