Mental and physical well-being: Practical and accessible resources for employees

We at Detroit Mercy have prioritized student health and well-being during the COVID-19 pandemic. We know we need to take care of ourselves, too, as employees. However, making time and knowing where to start may come as a challenge. The Online Learning Community is pleased to present an online webinar designed specifically for busy faculty, staff and administrators. Join fellow colleagues for a virtual wellness session on Thursday, April 8 from 11 to 12:15 p.m. to learn about practical and accessible resources for your mental and physical well-being.

This virtual event is presented by the Online Learning Community: a ReBUILDetroit Learning Community. Associate Professor of Nursing Arthur Ko will moderate the webinar.

Thank you to College of Engineering & Science Dean Katherine Snyder for generous support of the Online Learning Community through the ReBUILDetroit National Institutes of Health grant. Special thanks to ReBUILDetroit Assistant Director of Institutional Development Core & Grant/Program Manager Jahzara Mayes for her coordination of learning community activities.
