Next week, VUMC employees, faculty and staff are invited to take part in the annual Health & Benefits Fair, sponsored by the Vanderbilt Health Affiliated Network and VUMC Human Resources. This interactive event will leverage digital tools and on-site access to clinical services and medical experts that will help you check off your health and wellness goals before the end of the year.
