Wellness Workshop Series 2023: Request for Proposal

The Gold Humanism Honor Society Wellness Committee is seeking proposals for workshops to be offered as part of a wellness workshop series held throughout 2023, designed to address wellness in healthcare and provide tools and resources for attendees. Each of the six workshop sessions will be live and interactive (either in person, hybrid, or virtual) and are intended to be accessible to a range of healthcare team members and students (medical, nursing, pharmacy, physical and occupational therapy, social work, etc.).

The deadline to submit a proposal is November 30, 2022.

Workshops will address a range of wellness-centered topics relevant to the healthcare community.

  • Examples of themes include mental health, grief, exercise and nutrition, connecting with the natural environment, and mindfulness.
  • Possible formats include narrative writing, art creation, performance/improv, music, facilitated processing groups (for example, meeting around a shared experience such as physician suicide), or breakout discussions.

Proposals will be evaluated based on the following criteria:

  • Level of participant interaction and engagement
  • Relevance for healthcare workers and students across the healthcare spectrum (medical, nursing, pharmacy, physical & occupational therapy, social workers, etc.)
  • Clearly defined takeaways/deliverables
  • Creativity/originality
  • Relevant experience
