Wellness and Wellbeing Expos at CSU
Thursday, 16 Mar 2017
More than two and a half thousand people are expected to attend Charles Sturt University's (CSU) 2017 Wellness and Wellbeing Expos this month.
The Expos are being held at CSU in Albury-Wodonga, Bathurst, Dubbo, Orange, Port Macquarie and Wagga Wagga from Tuesday 14 to 30 March.
Organisers' Ms Lisa Tuineau and Ms Melissa Lombe said that through happier, healthier and more satisfied staff and students, the University hopes to foster a productive and resilient environment.
"Charles Sturt University recognises and values the importance of staff and student wellness and wellbeing and aims to adopt a holistic approach to the treatment of workplace health and safety," Ms Tuineau said.
"Workplace research shows that problems of a personal nature can and do have adverse effects on work performance, work satisfaction, study, health and feelings of wellbeing."
The Expos will give attendees the opportunity to obtain information on numerous health and wellbeing services offered to them by CSU as well as other service providers in local communities.
Information available at the Expos includes mental health; diabetes; physical activity; financial stability; security; literacy and superannuation; student services and support; student study skills support; stress management and prevention; caring for the elderly; alcohol and drug awareness; relationships; time management and lifestyle balance; nutrition and fitness; women's and men's health and smoking cessation.
The event also includes hearing checks, free massages and flu vaccinations.
The health and wellbeing of staff and students at CSU has received a boost with sponsorship from Gallagher, Employers Mutual, G&C Mutual Bank, UniSuper and nlc.
