Summer wellness series for employees comes to an end

Open book with the word 'Wellness'

The wellness series offered by the Office of Human Resources this summer has come to an end with its final session on mindfulness and the importance of restful sleep.

“We are so pleased with the response to our wellness series,” said Jen Mirabile, senior HR programs coordinator. “Each session was well-attended with meaningful discussion on the topics.”

The summer series featured information on topics from working in a changing environment and elder care to mindfulness. Each session was recorded and is available for viewing on the HR website.

Because of the positive response, HR will plan for more on-campus wellness seminars in the future. “Please feel free to email topic suggestions to to help us identify the topics of greatest interest to employees,” Mirabile said.
