In an event for young professionals hosted by the Buffalo Niagara Partnership (BNP), Whitney Mendel, an associate professor of public health, will explore “​​Creating Wellness in the Workplace.”

Attendees can register for the virtual presentation, which will take place Friday, Nov. 12 from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m., here.

The discussion will “illuminate factors that influence individual wellness – both personally and professionally, detail signs of burnout, as well highlight prevention opportunities, said Mendel, who specializes in community health education at Daemen, “as well as provide concrete strategies to help create and maintain a culture of wellness within an organization.”
