Quarterly Newsletter - April 2019

Published on March 27, 2019


Dear Colleagues,

Join me in welcoming Kathleen Yumul, our new wellness coordinator. Kathleen will be managing health and wellness programs and activities, including UC Walks Day on May 1st. You can read more about Kathleen and UC Walks Day below.

April is UCSF Volunteers Month and I encourage managers to consider volunteering with their teams this month. UCSF Volunteers has information and resources to make volunteering easy—and we have three events planned for UCSF Volunteers Month: SF Marin Food Bank, Sutro Stewards, and Ocean Beach Cleanup.


Jennifer Mannix
Manager, Wellness & Community

Kathleen has been with UCSF since 2015 and spent the past 3 years working in referral management. She was the sole member of the Adult Referral Center then launched the Cancer Services Referral Center, eventually becoming the supervisor of both departments. Prior to UCSF, Kathleen worked in human resources in the non-profit setting and also with UC Davis Health Education and Promotion where she specialized in sleep, stress, and mental health.

As wellness coordinator, Kathleen will oversee wellness programs and initiatives—including the Diabetes Prevention Program, UCSF tobacco-free task force, and online wellness challenges— that support the wellbeing of UCSF faculty, staff and learners.
