It’s Recharge Week! Learn how to take advantage of Recharge Rooms at Michigan Medicine

June 7, 2021  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

It’s Recharge Week at Michigan Medicine! The Department of Spiritual Care has designed a full week of activities to help faculty and staff build skills such as resiliency and self-love — in addition to learning how to best utilize the newly-installed recharge rooms on campus.

The rooms, located at CVC-5331A, MIB-626 and CW-7-231, are intended to induce short-term decreases in blood pressure, stress hormones and heart rate through elements like dimmed lighting, relaxing music, abundant greenery, socially-distanced, cozy seating and tranquil imagery projected on a video wall. 

Here are events that are free for all members of the Michigan Medicine community:
