Starting this week, RIT is hosting wellness screenings for faculty and staff. These screenings measure your cholesterol, blood pressure, glucose and triglycerides, so you can "know your numbers." As an added benefit, participants will receive a $100 wellness payment!
Continuing a new tradition established in 2012, the 18th annual Staff Recognition Awards will be presented along with the Isaac L. Jordan, Sr. Staff Pluralism Award during the ceremony.
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.
RIT’s ASL and Deaf Studies Community Center (RADSCC) has relocated to the first floor of the Wallace Center. The RADSCC is a place where faculty, staff, and students can gather to learn about Deaf culture, Deaf heritage, and American Sign Language (ASL). The Center serves as a resource for community, national, and international outreach activities that enrich and celebrate the talents and achievements of the Deaf community.
