About the Wellness Wheel

This Wellness Wheel is a representation that shows how all aspects of our lives can impact our overall wellness at any given time. For example, giving all of our energy to our work can cause our mental, physical and spiritual health to suffer, and will create imbalance in our “wheel.” In order to make overall wellness a priority and to create a balanced “wheel,” it is our objective as an organization to provide tools that can support you in all areas of your life.

Event FAQs

Still have some questions? If our FAQ didn’t quite cover them, don’t hesitate to send us an email.

Is participation mandatory?

No, participation is completely voluntary.

How can we participate?

You can participate as a group, as a whole practice team, individually, or a combination of all three. Even with other practices.

* Be mindful at the practice level some individuals may not want to do the group events — no pressure.

What kind of activities can we do?

  • RDOs will have a resource kit of ideas to discuss with their teams.
  • Any kind of movement would count. In reality, some of your practices may already be doing things that support physical and mental wellness, either intentionally or not.
  • After April 4th, resources will also be posted on the microsite and sent via email to registrants.

How do we show our participation and communicate during the event?

Once you have registered on the microsite, you can submit a picture (AKA selfie) to the Microsite. We will also have a HVP email specific for the event: [email protected]

If I have an idea for a team activity who should I talk to?

Please speak with your Practice Manager or Regional Director of Operations.

How can I tell how many tickets I have?

You receive a single ticket for every upload you make to the gallery and for registration. (For example, registering and five uploads to the gallery gives you six raffle tickets.)
