Nov. 3, 2006 -- Open Enrollment provides an annual opportunity for U.Va. employees to choose between available health programs, add or drop a spouse or depedent from the U.Va. Health Plan, or sign for a Flexible Spending Account (FSA). It also gives you a chance to consider the other benefits that are available to you, such as the Tax Deferred Savings Plan and Long Term Care Insurance, even though you may sign up for these benefits at any time during the year. Employees should have received information about Open Enrollment and the Fall Resource Fair, which was sent out by University Human Resources on Nov. 3. All relevant materials and forms are available at: www.hrs.virginia.edu/.
Student experiences at UVA come in many forms. For Ted Obi, a psychology and pre-med student, his journey took him to Ghana for a telemedicine project supported by UVA’s Center for Global Health and the Parents Fund.
