Quit for Life: A Wellness Success Story

no smoking

RIT's Better Me Wellness Program shared an inspirational story about Charlie Velazquez who quit smoking last year. After having a health-related “wake up call,” Charlie requested assistance from the Better Me Wellness Program and the Quit for Life Program through Excellus. These programs put him on the path to a healthier lifestyle and gave him the support and resources he needed to succeed. You can read Charlie’s story from the PDF attachment below.

How Do We Treat Each Other at RIT? Join the Conversation!

Civil Community Project @ RIT
According to the Civility in America 2013 report, incivility has risen to crisis levels. In fact, some consider incivility to be the new normal! 
For the most part, RIT is perceived by faculty, staff, and students as a civil community. Most of us would agree that RIT’s norm is to engage in interactions that are respectful and considerate. But, as with any community, occasionally there are incidents of incivility.
