  • University City 26th Annual 5K Run (15 Wellness Incentive Program Points)

    The University City 5K Run, formerly known as the Pipino Run, was founded by the Nicholas P. Pipino Memorial Foundation. The Foundation was created by family, friends, and volunteers seeking to stop senseless acts of violence and to preserve their fond memories of Nick Pipino. Nick was a Drexel University student who was fatally stabbed outside Cavanaugh's Restaurant & Bar on December 19, 1992, where he worked part-time as a bartender while pursuing an undergraduate degree at Drexel. In keeping with Nick's love for the outdoors, the Run has been organized since 1993 as a way to make something positive come out of Nick's untimely death. The Foundation partnered with Drexel University to create scholarship opportunities that enable young individuals to obtain an education without the demands of part-time employment and allows students to focus on their education. The Nicholas P. Pipino Memorial Scholarship provides financial assistance and a quality education to enthusiastic students who are eager to meet the realistic demands of the professional world. For the past 26 years, proceeds from the University City 5K Run have directly supported the Nicholas P. Pipino Memorial Scholarship at Drexel University. Each year, experienced runners and amateur weekend athletes take to the streets for the University City 5K Run, benefiting the Nicholas P. Pipino Memorial Scholarship for Drexel University students. The run is currently managed by Drexel University and Drexel alumni; students and community members are encouraged to line the race route and help cheer on the runners each April. The 26th Annual University City 5K Run will be held on Saturday, April 21, 2018 at 8 p.m. Packet pickup begins at 6:30 p.m. Online registration is available now and closes on April 19 at 11:59 p.m. Online registration can be found here: https://runsignup.com/Race/PA/Philadelphia/UniversityCity5K Day-of registration will be available starting at 6:30 p.m. Pre-registration costs $15.

  • Understanding and Treating Disordered Eating and Body Image Dissatisfaction (15 Wellness Points)*

    Tuesday, April 24, 2018

    12:00 PM-1:00 PM

    Sky View Room, 6th floor of MacAlister Hall OR VIA LIVE WEBSTREAM; Registration is required in Career Pathway to attend in-person

    • Staff

    Disordered eating refers to a wide range of problematic eating behaviors that can have a negative impact on a person’s emotional, social, and physical well-being. Behaviors such as loss of control eating, emotional eating, obsessive calorie counting, significant weight fluctuations, or a rigid focus on only eating the “right” kind of foods are common behaviors for many adults that can have a dramatic impact on quality of life.

    Luckily, a number of evidence-based treatment approaches exist to help individuals develop a more healthy and flexible approach to food so that they can reduce disordered eating behaviors. In the current workshop, we’ll review the factors that maintain disordered eating symptoms and discuss a number of approaches one can use to improve eating behaviors.

    Adrienne Juarascio, Ph.D., is a licensed clinical psychologist who is the current director of the DELTA clinic (Drexel’s Eating and Weight Loss Treatment and Assessment Clinic) as well as the director of training at the WELL Center (The Weight, Eating, and Lifestyle Sciences Center at Drexel). In addition to her clinical work, Dr. Juarascio also is the lead developer on several new innovative treatment approaches for eating pathology and is the primary investigator on several ongoing clinical trials at Drexel.

    This workshop is open to all faculty and staff. Please feel free to bring your lunch to this session. Registration to attend in-person is required in Career Pathway or to attend the live webstream.

  • Crafternoon: Adult Coloring Session for Faculty and Professional Staff (5 Wellness Incentive Points)

    Wednesday, April 25, 2018

    2:00 PM-3:00 PM

    Private Dining Room, Creese Student Center Basement

    • Faculty
    • Staff

    Join A Healthier U for an afternoon of coloring and crafting with your fellow Drexel employees—a Drexel Crafternoon!

    Coloring isn’t just for kids! Coloring books for adults have recently surged in popularity, but it’s not a new fad. Carl Jung began prescribing coloring to his patients as a relaxation technique in the early 20th century, with many psychologists following his lead since. That’s because
    coloring gives you an easy way to become engrossed in a comforting activity and forget about the day’s stresses. And when you’re done, you have a one-of-a-kind and inexpensive decoration—making it good for your mind and your wallet!

    We’ll provide the coloring books and crayons. Just bring your creativity!

    Interested in the comradery of a Drexel Crafternoon but want to work on another craft? No problem! Feel free to bring your own project and
    enjoy a relaxing afternoon with your craft colleagues.

    This event is open to all Drexel University faculty and professional staff. RSVP required in Career Pathway. For more information, please contact Monica Fauble: mfauble@drexel.edu

    *Participants in our 2018 Wellness Incentive Program are eligible to earn (5 points (a $5 credit) for attending this event in-person. In-person attendants must sign-in in order to receive credit. Credits will appear in the following month’s paycheck. For information about our wellness
