Whole U Speaker Panel: Managing Stress in the Workplace
WhenMonday, Sep. 17, 2018, 12 – 12:50 p.m.
Description

We all experience stress at work, but too much can have a serious effect on our health – both mental and physical. While we can’t control everything in our workplace environment, there are tips and coping mechanisms we can put in place to increase well-being at work.

Join the Whole U and our panel of experts on September 17th from 12:00 – 12:50 PM in the HUB room 214 for advice, tips and techniques on managing workplace stress. Our panel members will each provide a 10-minute presentation with their unique approach to stress management followed by an open discussion and audience Q&A.
