A New Model for Collaborative Wellbeing Leadership

Recorded On: 12/11/2023

A New Model for Collaborative Wellbeing Leadership 

This session presents a new model for collaborative wellbeing leadership. The model is based on a qualitative, collective case study of Chief Wellness Officers (CWO) and will present new ideas for the leadership of well-being programs. This presentation will enhance the understanding of how CWOs facilitate campus well-being efforts in collaboration with others and will provide insight into the strategic, relational, and communications skills necessary for success.

This webinar is brought to you by the ACHA Health Promotion Section
