Art exhibit celebrates Black History Month


The Educational Resources Center (ERC) is hosting an art exhibition entitled, “Support System” by artist Ruth Maclin, in conjunction with Black History Month activities on campus.

Maclin is an abstract/multimedia artist from Columbus. She studied art and holds her B.F.A. and M.F.A. degrees from The Ohio State University. At a very young age, Maclin’s creativity was inspired by her mother and father’s natural artistic ability and was expressed through various art forms including music (cello and piano), creative writing, painting and wood sculpturing. She has exhibited nationally and internationally.

“My vision is to create a retreat where a community can come together in a holistic environment to promote spiritual healings using various art forms,” said Maclin.

The exhibit will be on display in the ERC Main Gallery on Level 1 of Columbus Hall until February 28.

Screenings going well!Wellness logoSince the introduction of the new Wellness Incentive program, 263 full-time employees have signed up for, or taken, their biometric screening through Ohio State Managed Health Care Systems, Inc., our partner in the program.

Many employees have also completed their personal health assessment (PHA), which is the second step of the Wellness Incentive process.  It is important to complete the biometric screening first (a blood test to measure glucose and cholesterol, plus blood pressure test) in order to fill in the values in your personal health assessment.

The third step of your Wellness Incentive process will be to have your half-hour health coaching session, by phone or in person. Then you will have earned your $150 incentive!  To earn the additional $150, you will accrue “points” for attending wellness seminars, participating in fitness activities, getting your flu shot, and more. 

If you have any questions about the new Wellness Incentive Program, contact Nichole Bowman-Glover at ext. 3989.
