Employee Wellness Committee

The University Wellness Committee is a standing committee charged with creating and fostering an environment designed to promote better employee health through education, health screening, and access to healthy lifestyle choices.

Wellness involves continued growth and balance in all eight of the dimensions: physical, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, environmental, occupational, financial and social. Each of the eight dimensions impact each other and contribute to overall wellness and quality of life.

September 2020 Lunch and Learn

"Advanced Care Planning" by Renee Anderton

Join us virtually via Zoom on September 28 at 12:00 to discuss Advance Care Planning with UPHP’s Renee Anderton.

Advance Care Planning involves learning about the types of decisions that might need to be made, considering those decisions in advance, and letting both your healthcare providers and your family know about your preference. These decisions can then be put into a legal document called an advance directive which only goes into effect if you are unable to speak for yourself. This document can also express your values and desires related to end-of-life care.

Lunch and Learn Programs are a lunchtime presentation on health topics that include a free lunch. Because the Lunch and Learn will be virtual, a lunch will be credited to employees’ NMU ID cards. Attendance will be taken both at the beginning and end of the program. Employees that are present for the entire presentation will be credited one meal.

This event has a registration limit of 40 NMU Employees. Please register for the Zoom meeting at this link.
