Creating Healthy Workspaces and Healthy Workplaces

Undergraduate Library, David Adamany
Extended periods of sitting—at work or school—can affect one's posture, increase stress, and negatively impact both physical and emotional health. We invite you to join the President’s Commission on the Status of Women (COSW) for an interactive and informational event where you will learn techniques for improving your health by improving the space and place in which you work or study. RYT-Certified Yoga Instructor Heather Sandlin will provide demonstrations of chair yoga postures, which can be completed at your desk. Gerry Conti, WSU assistant professor of occupational therapy and director of the Human Movement/A.R.M. Laboratories, will conduct an interactive session on body mechanics, office ergonomics, and how best to adapt your posture and work environment to improve your health and well-being. Be sure to dress in comfortable clothes and be prepared to engage in light activity. Light refreshments will be served. Feel free to bring a bag lunch.
