Well-being Wednesdays

As we move through this unprecedented time in our country, with challenges and uncertainty impacting both our professional and personal lives, it is more important than ever to make sure you are taking care of yourself both physically and mentally.

Whether you’re struggling to adjust to remote work and online classes, taking care of children or aging parents, or feeling socially isolated, so much rapid change can take a toll.

In response, Healthy UC is launching an initiative called Well-being Wednesdays. This weekly series will give faculty, staff and students the opportunity to participate in a variety of interactive and educational programming online.
