Dee Dee Strimel, the regional PEIA Pathways to Wellness coordinator, announced today that the WVU Libraries is the November Worksite of the Month. She lauded the Libraries’ wellness program for coordinating activities and being responsive in the administration of programs. She also praised the Libraries’ employees for their extensive participation. Recent programs include a nutrition activity called “5 a Day;” a stress reduction series called “Stress Less, Be Your Best;” and a walking program called “Walk 100 Miles in 100 Days.” Each activity is coordinated by a Wellness Committee member: Sherry Steadman, Barbara Lagodna, Susanne Rasmussen, Carroll Wilkinson, Kristi Truban, and Linda Blake. The Libraries’ staff benefit from these health and wellness activities thanks to the support of Myra Lowe, Associate Dean of Libraries, and Frances O’Brien, Dean of Libraries.
