FRIDAY, May 25TH
9 – 10:30 AM | ALDER AUDITORIUM
FREE & OPEN TO ALL UW STAFF, FACULTY AND STUDENTS
Why is it that some people respond to life’s challenges with resilience while others fall apart? How can contemplative practices like meditation and mindfulness help us become healthier and happier – as individuals and as a community?
How does compassion for ourselves and others affect our neurobiology? What does all this mean for our work with UW students?
Tackle these timely and intriguing topics, and get answers to your questions in this interactive presentation by Dr. Anne Browning of the UW Resilience Lab.
This is the second in a series of educational forums open to all UW staff, faculty and students, and brought to you by the Student Wellbeing Collaborative. Coffee will be provided.
No RSVP is needed – we hope to see you there!
