Wellness – December 2017

Work-Life Balance

OFD is developing a new wellness program. Our first happy hour in October was very successful and will continue. We are again offering in January the foam rolling series taught by Proactive Life Training. See the events calendar for dates and registration. We will be unrolling more wellness opportunities after the New Year. We welcome ideas you have of ways to develop a stronger community and deal with the challenges of our daily lives. Feel free to email your ideas to janetbraun@wustl.edu or discuss with any of the OFD directors, Bess Marshall, Yumi Turmelle and David Schnadower. We will also be sending a survey to all faculty for your ideas and preferred day and time for offerings.
