To celebrate Graduate Appreciate Day and to foster UMD’s emphasis on student wellness, the Department of Geographical Sciences hosted Ms. Sarah Wilson (MPS, CHES, MSW) for a Graduate Student Health and Wellness presentation and luncheon. Ms. Wilson, Mental Health and Stress Management Coordinator at UMD’s Health Promotion and Wellness Services, led our GEOG grads through methods of identifying personal stressors and exploring self-care strategies and relaxation techniques. GEOG grads, staff, and faculty attended the UMD Co-Op catered event to socialize with friends and colleagues and take a break from busy schedules to learn about self-care. We appreciate our GEOG grads and all that you do in and outside the Department!
