Mental Health

Mental Health awareness is critical to our every day ability to be healthy, happy, and functional. Feeling the effects of imposter syndrome? Struggling with a tough period in life? Seeking motivation and direction? Practicing mindfulness? Please take advantage of the many resources available at UW, including the Resilience Lab, the UW counseling center, or the Mental Health Clinic at Hall Health.

Every week in the Nance lab meeting, we have a mental health moment. Our compiled mental health resources are linked here.

Physical and Nutritional Health

We believe that high quality science comes from happy, active, healthy people. Our lab, along with the UW, is dedicated to creating a compassionate, healthy, and enabling work environment for all our students. To do this, our lab participates in the Whole U Program, and follows our favorite M.D., Ph.D., Dr. Tommy Wood, on blogs and podcasts available through his website,
