(Sept. 30, 2013) -- The UTSA Employee Occupational Health and Wellness Center has a new home in Bauerle Road Garage Suite 1.102, one floor above the ground floor in a space formerly occupied by the C-Store.

>> As part of the Office of Environmental Health, Safety and Risk Management team, the center staff invites the UTSA community to stop by between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 2 for healthy refreshments and to learn about services at the new office.

The center will be ready to serve faculty and staff enrolled in UTSA Occupational Health and Wellness programs. Hours are 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday-Friday, with staff including Rebecca Stenberg, R.N., occupational health coordinator, and Sarah Wright, office assistant II. Anna Racelis, wellness assistant, will be in the center on scheduled assessment days.

The office houses an exam room, immunization station, workspace for Occupational Health and Wellness, receptionist station, waiting area and a computerized health station and blood pressure kiosk available to all employees who wish to come by and check their vital signs.

We are very excited to have the enlarged space for use by our contract doctor and nurse to perform occupational health exams and fitness tests, and administer vaccines in a comfortable environment. Additionally, Occupational Health and Wellness Manager Kristee Phelps and Wellness Assistant Anna Racelis will use the workspace and exam room to provide health and wellness assessments.

For employees who prefer the west campus location, wellness assessments will continue at Support Facilities Building A Room 1.102, adjacent to the Sculpture and Ceramics Graduate Studio. Additionally, wellness assessments scheduled for employees at the Downtown and Hemisfair Park campuses will continue.

Football standouts make Roadrunner history

For Ashaad Mabry and Triston Wade, football is not just a passing fancy. Both players were part of the UTSA football program almost from the beginning. When UTSA opens the 2015 season Thursday at Arizona, it will be the first time the Roadrunners take the field without them. But Mabry and Wade will still be playing football; their uniforms will just be a different color.

Mabry, a defensive tackle from San Antonio's MacArthur High School, was an honorable mention All-Conference USA selection his final two seasons as a Roadrunner and second among the team's defensive linemen with 49 tackles last year. Wade, a defensive back from Tyler, was the most decorated player in school history. He was a semifinalist for the 2014 Jim Thorpe Award – for the nation's top defensive back – a three-time all-conference honoree and two-year team captain who set a school record of 293 tackles in his career. Both men had outstanding college careers that allowed them to make UTSA history.

Did you know? Mabry and Wade both agreed to terms as undrafted free agents with the New Orleans Saints and Seattle Seahawks, respectively, becoming the first UTSA players to move to the professional ranks.
