Frostburg State University’s “Creating Healthy, Informed, Lasting Lifestyles” (CHILL) will host a two-day workshop series aimed at promoting worksite wellness topics to faculty and staff on March 5 and 6 in the Lane University Center. Activities start at 8 a.m. and run until 3 p.m. on March 5 and will be held from 8 a.m. to noon on March 6. The informative festivities, part of CHILL’s ongoing efforts to incorporate wellness into the entire campus community, bring national mind/body fitness expert Scott Cole back to the FSU campus.
“Our faculty and staff work diligently to provide our students with a well-rounded education. We need to ensure that we incorporate the importance of living well into this instruction,” said April Baer, Coordinator for University Wellness.
Known for lifting spirits, inspiring minds and toning bodies, Cole will share 25 years of expertise with FSU faculty and staff by hosting a series of programs and discussions aimed at promoting wellness through active participation and
commitment. “Increasing wellness literacy” is a part of Cole’s campaign across the nation to build better minds and bodies through meditation, exercise and a lifestyle approach that amplifies the need for overall health and balance.
March 5 is a day dedicated to encouraging the conversation of wellness among the faculty and staff through a seminar series and open discussion. Faculty and staff members will present topics ranging from the benefits of a running program to the connections between student leadership and health. The day will conclude with an hour-long program where Cole will empower the audience through “The Art of Living Well: Making the Choice,” an hour-long interactive journey exploring the topic of wellness.
On March 6, faculty and staff can learn techniques to incorporate wellness into their daily routines through 20-minute programs held throughout the morning. Cole will lead two sessions, “Breath and Chi Kung” and “Chair Strength and Stretch,” activities that aim to relax and re-energize participants and help them feel balanced while at work. A vendor fair will also be offered during which participants can seek out local businesses and organizations that promote wellness throughout Allegany County and beyond.
CHILL’s wellness workshops and programs are a part of FSU’s commitment to promote health practices and education among college students and the local community. CHILL is funded by a charitable contribution from AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals LP.
