Supported by IDEA Innovation Grants and hosted in partnership with Student Affairs.

To support the mental health of Rutgers postdocs, the Office of Postdoctoral Advancement is hosting Postdoc Pause: A Wellness Day on Thursday, May 25, from 12:00-3:00 pm in Trayes Hall at the Douglass Student Center.

This will be an immersive and practical experience event that has been organized to provide postdocs with a much-needed break.

The event will be a refreshing change from typical lecture-style events, allowing postdocs to engage in wellness activities actively. This is also a wonderful opportunity to connect and network with other postdocs across the university.

The day will include:

- Mindfulness meditation workshop hosted by Rutgers CAPS' Shan L. Reeves, LCSW, from 12:30-1:30 pm

- Massages provided by Rutgers Recreation from 12:30-2:30 pm

- Lunch, therapeutic coloring, and other wellness activities throughout the event

- Giveaways

Please join us to de-stress before Memorial Day Weekend!
