Join the College of Health and Human Sciences Dean’s Leadership Council for an evening of stress relief and self-care! The DLC will be hosting the third annual McCubbin Leadership Event to help students combat the negative health effects of chronic stress or “burnout.”

The McCubbin Leadership Event will take place on March 12 from 4 – 6 p.m. in Ballroom A in the Lory Student Center.

“Every year we work to create an event for students within the College of Health and Human Sciences,” said Rebecca Rathburn, president of the Dean’s Leadership Council. “Our goal is to benefit our fellow students by providing them with an event centered around leadership development and preparation for life after they earn their degrees.”

The event features a panel discussion on dealing with burnout with breakout sessions centered on self-care and stress reduction. The event is focused on helping students with conversations about preventing chronic stress which can lead to symptoms of burnout such as fatigue, anxiety, depression, and forgetfulness. Breakout sessions include yoga and mindfulness activities and the Human Animal Bond in Colorado therapy dogs.

The event will include a mixer with CHHS students, faculty, staff and alumni. The mixer will take place from 5 – 6 p.m. in Ballroom A in the Lory Student Center. Food will also be provided.

Registration is requested. To register, visit the handshake page for students and here for faculty members.

The McCubbin Leadership Event is sponsored by former Dean Jeff McCubbin and his wife Debbie McCubbin.
