This week, students in the wellness management class titled Critical Issues in the Workplace explored organizations that support workplace wellness initiatives. The organizations that were chosen provide excellent resources for workplace wellness professionals. Derek O’Neil, a second year masters student had the opportunity to research the American Heart Association.
The American Heart Association is a non-profit organization that educates appropriate cardiac care in an effort to reduce disability and deaths caused by cardiovascular disease and stroke. What many people do not realize is the AHA’s involvement in workplace wellness. Some great resources offered by the AHA include Fit and Friendly Worksites, Workplace Giving Campaign, and the Walking Path App.

In the workplace, we are often looking to start a dialogue between co-workers. After examining many avenues at The Fisher Institute, we have found a CHEAP and EASY way to bring about conversation between professionals.
Katie Bowers and Kathleen Corcoran, both current master’s students in the Wellness Management program have been conducting weekly morning “coffee chats.” The invitation to attend is extending to both community and corporate wellness professionals in Delaware County. The “coffee chats” have become a popular meeting spot and a successful foundation to encourage discussion on current issues and trends. Guests are invited to grab a cup of coffee and take a seat at the round table in preparation for viewing that weeks Ted Talk. The pre-chosen Ted Talks cover a variety of topics, some are directly related to one of the dimensions of well-being while others may be inspirational. The informal setting encourages networking, collaboration, and thought provoking discussion.
The next time you are looking for a fun and stress-free way to bring about conversation, consider a Ted Talk!
