As the university continues to adjust to a ‘post-pandemic’ daily workplace, and also to sudden, but seemingly more frequent extreme weather events, we need to step back and reflect on self-care and community-care. During the lunch, we will be exploring actions that could lead to a more sustainable future for university employees.
Our panel discussion will be focused around this question: How can UT staff be engaged in their own health and well-being, and what are the opportunities to support equity, resiliency and community action related to health and well-being?
We’ll hear from the following experts who are doing research and innovating to help define the future of health and well-being, and discuss the environmental, economic, and equity implications of different possibilities.
- Susan Harnden, Director of HealthPoint, Office of the Associate Vice President for Human Resources
- Johnny Lee, Micro Mobility Coordinator, Parking and Transportation Services
- Dr. Miriam Solis, Assistant Professor of Community and Regional Planning, School of Architecture
