Staff and faculty who want to attend a “Health Matters” are invited to sign up for updates to receive a calendar invitation and link for the program. Each webinar is recorded and available later on-demand.

The Jan. 23 session will cover how to build sustainable habits that are effective long-term with insights from the book, “Tiny Habits” by BJ Fogg, a Stanford University behavior scientist who helps people change behavior through small steps.

“That’s the key when people are motivated early in the year,” Granville said.

Allison Resch, an administrative assistant at Duke Regional Hospital, attended six “Health Matters” sessions in 2022 and is excited about the variety of the offerings through June 2023. She appreciates that each webinar covers an approachable topic with real-world actions to stay healthy.

For example, a session about making quick and healthy meals led her to creating what she calls, “adult lunchables.” About twice per week, she fixes a lunch that includes a balanced plate of lunch meat, crackers, carrots and fruit.

Other webinars have helped her take breaks for a walk.

“It gets ingrained into you,” Resch said. “You remember things that you should be doing.”
