Health Squad

Due to the various crises our college community has endured and responded to over the past several years, it is a priority to take care of our PROA tribe. The Health Squad is an informal group of employees organized to explore ways that we, at the College, can take care of each other's health and wellness.

Wellness Passport

The Wellness Passport is an NMC Online tool for employees to document their journey to improved health and wellness. The passport contains 5 different dimensions of wellness: physical, social, spiritual, environmental, and emotional. Each month, the Health Squad will be announcing activities in each of these 5 dimensions as options for employees. Employees can also participate in an activity that is not listed on the calendar. Employees track participation in any activity using the online wellness passport.
