Keynote Speakers, March 11, 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. in the Arts Building, Black Box Theater
Keynote speakers, Cindy Wolff, Glynda-Lee Hoffmann, and Greg Cootsona will each address different areas of wellness tailored to the community college environment. Each of these speakers were participants of the TEDx Talks Chico event last October and will provide a short presentation with a question and answer section.
Cindy Wolff is the founder and Executive Director of the Center for Nutrition and Activity Promotion at California State University, Chico. Wolff created many successful public health programs designed to promote healthier eating and physical activity patterns to help prevent child and adult obesity. Central to these programs is the application of behavioral economics to identify and implement decision design strategies that make the healthier choice, the easier, more convenient choice.
Glynda-Lee Hoffmann is a published author and co-director of the Hoffmann Learning Research Institute (HLRI). Hoffmann will explore how to use the brain to increase learning.
Greg Cootsona is an Associate Pastor for Adult Discipleship and has discovered the critical role of finding the right rhythm of “yeses” and “nos” for full spiritual, personal, and professional development. Cootsona will focus on teaching this rhythm of yes and no.
Wellness Fair, March 12-13, 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. in the Campus Center Lounge
Campus and community organizations will provide free, highly interactive booths and hands-on learning. Participants can expect to enjoy two days of free wellness demonstrations including: class projects, community wellness experts, healthy snacks, workshops, massage, and music.
