This drop-in event for Faculty and Staff will be held from 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.  There will be door prizes and give-aways! Look for the Human Resources table to enter for door prizes.

Please contact the HR Service Center, at 912-478-MYHR (6947), if you have further questions.  We hope to see you at the Benefits and Wellness Fair!


Over forty (40) vendors, such as AirEvac Lifeteam, Anthem, Delta Dental, EyeMed, MetLife, TRS, and more, will be at the Fair, along with several campus departments and many local medical offices and businesses.


We will also have free wellness screenings available to ALL employees, including blood pressure checks, chiropractic spinal screenings, skin cancer screenings and various others.  These screenings may vary at each campus. 

East Georgia Regional Medical Center will have a provider at the Statesboro event who will offer free hernia screenings.  If you are interested in the hernia screening, please stop by East Georgia Regional Medical Center’s table at the Fair for more information.  A separate room will be available for the hernia screening.


Employees covered under a USG health plan may schedule a free, confidential onsite health screening to check in on a few key health measures.  You’ll get results for your blood pressure, cholesterol, glucose, and more.
