Department of Surgery Wellness Program

The Wellness Program is designed to provide resources and activities to promote well-being for everyone in the Department of Surgery.  The Department Wellness Program is broken into two committees and a Steering committee.

Within these committees, members propose ideas to present to the Department of Surgery Wellness Steering Committee and are categorized into three areas:

  • Green light: Ideas that are easy to facilitate and receive approval for.
  • Yellow light: Ideas that are more challenging to facilitate and receive approval for.
  • Red light: Ideas that are most difficult to implement and facilitate, and approval will be more challenging.
