And even more, she is eager to initiate more outreach programs, including stress reduction workshops, meditation sessions, and even yoga classes, throughout the campus. Beth has been encouraged by the university’s openness to incorporating these techniques, and is hopeful that the opportunities for implementation will continue to flourish.
