UBC is a beautiful campus jam-packed with students and staff – a vibrant and growing community. I’ve been working on campus for 12 years and sure, I won’t lie to you, I feel pretty blessed to work at the job I do with the benefits I have, in such an wonderful natural backdrop.
But one of the other things I love is the people I meet in the job that I do. One of those people is Suzanne Jolly, who, to me, is a prime mover towards helping make UBC a healthier workplace, through many initiatives including the Healthy UBC Newsletter and the Healthy Workplace Initiatives Program Fund.
Suzanne, Patty Hambler and a host of other wonderful people help put together a fantastic roster of events for students, faculty and staff to celebrate healthy minds, bodies and living at UBC with a distinct focus on positive mental health. I’ll be hosting a healthy potluck in my department inviting my colleagues to kick back, share yummy recipes and connect on a personal level, putting up a lovely health related book display at the store, plus I was just about to log in to register for the Respond with Respect: Mental Health in the Workplace on October 19th…
From October 17th-21st show UBC how you Thrive.
