Wellness Themes and Events 

The Selfie Scavenger Hunt

Summer is the perfect time to get out of the office and take advantage of the great weather and beautiful community in which we work.  For a breath of fresh air, head out for a walk on your lunch hour and join our first ever Selfie Scavenger Hunt!  Submit a selfie from each location to earn a raffle entry for our grand prize drawing.  The more locations you visit, the better your chance of winning!  One lucky hunter will win a brand new iPod nano & $25 iTunes gift card- great for tracking your steps and jamming along the way!  The hunt runs through the entire month of August, so check out the latest edition of Wellness Ways for your photos of your scavenger hunt locations and get walkin'!

Lunch 'n Learn Series

In the Fall 2015 semester, we will continue to offer a variety of Lunch 'n Learn sessions.  Dates and details will be published as we move closer to each event.

If you have an idea for a Lunch 'n Learn that you'd like us to offer, please don't hesitate to let us know.  Stop by the Human Resources office or contact Kelly Pogore at x8325 or kpogore@daemen.edu.

Health & Wellness Resource Library

We have started a small Health & Wellness resource "library" in the Human Resources office and we need your help!  To increase the size and variety of available resources, please consider donating your new or gently-used books and videos about:

Fitness & Exercise, Stress Relief, Nutrition & Healthy Eating, Cookbooks, Financial Management, Other self-help topics

Items in this collection are available for all employees to borrow, serving a two-fold purpose: to give new life to unused wellness items and and facilitate the sharing of wellness-related resources within the Daemen Community. To browse, borrow or donate, just stop by Human Resources or contact Kelly Pogore at x8325 or kpogore@daemen.edu.

This Month's Featured Book is Fitness That Works: Simple Moves to Make Exercise Happen From 9 To 5

Check out a sample chapter (PDF).  Stop by Human Resources to borrow your copy today.
