Work and Family Month at NIH banner Join us in October for Work and Family Month at NIH
"As the nation’s biomedical research agency, we are committed to improving health for all Americans. Science has shown that our family relationships have an important effect on our physical well-being. I am proud of the substantial work-life resources available to the NIH workforce, and I encourage each of you to participate in Work and Family Month so you can take advantage of the resources that are most helpful to you."
- Dr. Francis Collins, Former NIH Director

Work and Family Month

Between work, family, and personal life, we juggle multiple responsibilities every day. Finding a healthy balance among them is essential to our own personal well-being. Well-Being is being defined by Gallup, into five essential categories:  Social, Community, Career, Physical and Financial.  By addressing each of the areas and having resources to assist you when you hit a bump in the road, will keep you well-rounded like a bicycle tire that will carry your well-being life bike far in life.

The Office of Resource Services (ORS), Office of Human Resources and Resilience Through Well-Being campaign has planned over 70 virtual activities and made available resources appropriate for “maintaining your well-being life bike." 

There is something for EVERYONE, including federal employees, trainees, fellows and contractors.

Resources are available in many formats:  live webinars, free fitness classes, Foil the Flu clinics, websites, PDFs, and archived webinars and vignettes​ for viewing when you have time. 

​Be sure to check the webpage frequently and bookmark it as information will be added and updated throughout the month. Please share this webpage with colleagues, co-workers, and contractors.  The website can be accessed by any computer or iPhone/android.

Events and resources are divided in to themes that target a specific category of well-being:  Physical, Career, Social, Community and Financial.  Each weekly theme is located in the far left box under Theme.  

Week 1 Theme:  Resilience Through Well-Being

Week 2 Theme:  Social/Caring for Others and Community 

Week 3 Theme:  Career 

Week 4 Theme:  Physical/Mental Well-Being and Financial

You must obtain your supervisor's approval if you plan to attend events occurring during your work hours.

Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to learn how

NIH cares for and supports its workforce!

If there is a resource or event you think should be included, need any reasonable accommodations to participate in these events or have any questions, please contact Tonya Lee, NIH Work-Life Coordinator at worklife@nih.gov.
