Each year the National Wellness Institute invites University faculty, staff and students to submit poster proposal highlighting best practices and/or research related to wellness. A select few are invited to participate in The Poster Showcase at the annual National Wellness Conference. Dr. Sherry Jarrett, DHEd, Department Chair of Early Childhood Education at Nyack College, presented a poster entitled "Holistic Wellness of Undergraduate Teacher Candidates" at this year’s 35th Annual National Wellness Conference held in Stevens Point, Wisconsin July 17-22. Her poster received the 2010 Award of Excellence for the Research category. Her research study provides a model for other universities involved in Teacher Education. The National Wellness Institute Poster Review Committee, chaired by Dr. John Munson, was greatly impressed with Dr. Jarrett’s research and applauds her for reaching across disciplines to provide holistic wellness education for tomorrow’s teachers, as they will be role models for the children they will someday teach.
Congratulations, Dr. Jarrett!
