Summit to Summit
The BHAC Advisory Board is excited to launch “Summit to Summit." This new initiative extends the BHAC summit outcomes, helps you stay connected to previous speakers and BHAC members, and allows you to keep finding inspiration between summits. Hear virtual updates on timely topics presented at previous summits and continue pushing forward important health promotion work.

Keep an eye out for the first “Summit to Summit” feature in March 2022.
BHAC Membership Survey
As part of our strategic planning efforts to serve our members better, we are asking our BHAC members to complete a survey. In February, we emailed a link to complete the survey.

The results of the survey will be used to shape future programming and benefits. Thanks to everyone who has already completed the survey!
Reviewers Needed
We are still looking for individuals interested in contributing comprehensive, evidence-based practices for faculty, staff, and student wellness, academic medical centers, and wellness innovation.

Why get involved?  Participating in the BHAC journal review process gives you experience with the publishing process while helping build evidence-based practices, policies, and recommendations to enhance wellness in academic communities. If you are an experienced author or reviewer, we welcome your input to our mission. If you have ambitions of publishing in the future, consider becoming a reviewer.

Work alongside individuals from across the USA sharing best-in-class strategies and ideas. If you are master and PhD prepared and are interested in submitting, email your CV to Megan Amaya.
