Your Journey to Health & Wellbeing

The 2023 Sustainability Speaker Series: Your Journey to Health and Wellbeing was born from conversations with Auburn University leaders seeking to support Auburn employees’ wellbeing. In service to the efforts of our cosponsors, listed below the AU logo, the Office of Sustainability is pleased to present our 2023 speaker series with Dr. Ford Dyke and Olympian Reita Clanton.

YOUR JOURNEY

Self-care for health and wellbeing has never been more important or necessary. This semester-long program will orient participants to practices designed to support health and wellbeing. This program will be of value to those just embarking on the journey of self-care as well as to those with an existing practice.

GET EMPOWERED

Olympian Reita Clanton and Dr. Ford Dyke, from the School of Kinesiology, facilitate this evidence-based program. Employees will be guided and empowered to develop along their journey to health and wellbeing.

OVERVIEW

The program will commence on January 9th with the Kick-Off Presentation which invites you to explore Mindfulness and the Pillars of Performance and Health: Respiration, Hydration, Nutrition, Movement, and Recovery.

Then approximately every two weeks throughout the spring term, Reita and Ford will, for each of the five pillars, host an in-depth one-hour In-Person Seminar and provide a Virtual Check-In

You may attend any or all components of this health and wellbeing initiative.
