As you’ll see, maintaining a healthy heart is incredibly important. But thankfully, it’s also relatively easy.

The Thrive Wellness Steering Group (TWSG) met on January 6th. During this meeting, the team finalized the presentation and education for PSL team members and all residents as part of the Thrive rollout. The next step was to meet with the entire Operations Leadership Team on January 15th to present Thrive Wellness. These leaders from across PSL have all been a part of the whole development process, as they have received several presentations and updates over the last year on Thrive Wellness. This presentation included providing all executive directors and campus leadership with the Thrive Wellness PowerPoint and the Thrive Wellness Community Committee charter for sharing with their resident councils and all residents. Executive Directors will make these presentations soon, along with their steering group representative.
