Banner Health announced in February it had extended the membership opportunity for the Wellness Center at Banner – University Medical Center Tucson to all College of Medicine – Tucson faculty, in addition to Banner faculty, including residents and fellows.

Serena Scott, MD, MBA, Department of Medicine vice chair for faculty development and clinical chief, Division of General Internal Medicine, Geriatrics and Palliative Medicine, encouraged all DOM faculty and trainees — residents and fellows — to take advantage of this opportunity.

Faculty wellness is essential for improving the patient experience and providing quality outcomes for all served at the hospital and its clinics. And multiple benefits of exercise do a lot to improve wellness both physically, emotionally and mentally. It just makes everyone feel healthier and happier.
