House Officer Wellness

House Officer Wellness

The Hospital Wellness Service at the UC Davis veterinary hospital now offers a wellness program for all its House Officers. With input from House Officers themselves, and through the generous support of Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health, the House Officer Wellness (HOW) program launched in the Fall of 2021. HOW offers individual wellness support with our on-site Client Support & Wellness Professional Florence Soares-Dabalos, where each House Officer can develop personalized goals in stress management, self-care, and well-being. Ms. Soares-Dabalos can also assist with mental health resources and suicide prevention. House Officers are encouraged to utilize the HOW program by reaching out to Ms. Soares-Dabalos at fsoaresdabalos@ucdavis.edu or 530-752-1393.
