Wellbeing Program

Based on feedback received following the second annual Wellbeing Week in September 2017, Macquarie University has developed an ongoing Wellbeing program designed to provide a number of opportunities for you to learn about how to improve your health and wellbeing.

The Wellbeing program will feature different themes each quarter and will include events such as staff information sessions and group activities. Our upcoming themes for 2018 will focus on physical exercise, health and nutrition, and sleep and stress management.
