Habitat for Humanity
Each year, our wellness faculty leader facilitates an opportunity for residents and faculty to work together on a local housing project for an underserved resident.
Residents, faculty, and/or other staff who demonstrate exemplary performance each week are acknowledged at resident conference in a casual setting that encourages recognition of those who have done something outstanding, or that goes “above-and-beyond”.
During each month that contains five Thursdays, the fifth Thursday is used as a “wellness week” that allows the residents a restful break from the usual learning environment, while still attending to their educational needs. Examples include trips to the zoo or botanical garden with a toxicologist, or pool-side education on work-life balance issues.
