Spring Wellness Wednesday Series begins Feb. 3


Students can stay informed on current health and wellness issues through SUNY Cortland’s weekly “Wellness Wednesday Series,” which will include speakers, discussions and podcasts intended to help students with information about college life, including a special focus on life since COVID-19.

Sponsored by the Health Promotion Office and the Student Development Center, the series will take place each Wednesday. All events are virtual and open to the public.

On Feb. 3, a podcast titled “I Had COVID-19, Now What?” by Athletic Trainer Katrina Marshall will be available on Soundcloud.

COVID-19’s Disproportionate Impact on Black Communities” will be discussed from 5 to 5:30 p.m. on Feb. 10, presented by Health Educator Lauren Scagnelli and Senior Counselor Roueida Ghadban.

On Feb. 17, Senior Counselor Jennifer Talarico will present “Listening and Connecting with Our Bodies” from 5 to 5:30 p.m. We often have strong thoughts about our bodies, but how often do we hear and understand what our bodies are telling us? We will be examining the impact stress can have on our relationship with food and exercise, and the potential spectrum of disordered eating patterns. We will explore ways to increase body compassion through fostering a deeper connection to our bodies so a balance can be achieved.

The podcast to be introduced on Feb. 24 is titled “COVID-19 Vaccine Information.”

Events in March and April will cover topics including bullying, sexual health, healthy eating, yoga, cannabis and the importance of sleep. We will include descriptions and links to these Wellness Wednesday events in the Feb. 23 issue of The Bulletin.

A poster listing all the Spring 2021 events can be found at Wellness Wednesday Series - Spring 2021 and on the Campus Life page of myRedDragon.
