Three SMTD staff members were honored for their work in wellness at the MHealthy Champion retreat on November 1.
SMTD’s three MHealthy Champions, Paola Savvidou (Wellness Initiative Program Manager and LEO Lecturer III), Becky Olsen (Academic Advisor Senior), and Sarah Erlewine (Director of Marketing & Communications for Ticketed Performances), received the LaVaughn Palma-Davis Wellness Committee award as part of the annual seminar held at the North Campus Research Building. The award recognizes Wellness Committees who positively affect the culture of well-being in their department.
The SMTD committee has facilitated hundreds of mindfulness sessions through yoga and meditation, led multiple walking groups and Active U teams, and arranged other programs such as visits from therapy dogs, virtual cooking demos, and more. We congratulate Paola, Becky, and Sarah on a well-deserved honor.
