Dr. Suzie Carmack, who serves on Mason’s adjunct faculty developing and teaching well-being courses for the School of Integrative Studies and the Department of Global and Community Health, recently won Outstanding Graduate Alumnus of the Year award for the 2017-2018 academic year from Mason’s Department of Communication for her distinguished work.
Carmack’s work spans the diverse dimensions of well-being. Her recent book Genius Breaks: Optimize Your Workday Performance and Well-Being shows people how to optimize their well-being in the workplace. A fall 2018 semester well-being course she will teach at Mason – “Mindfulness, Movement, and Compassion” – examines ways that yoga, movement, mindfulness and compassion techniques can be brought into pre-k, k through 12, and university classrooms. She has founded the Center for Well-Being Education, which educates people about issues related to well-being – such as stress, exercise, mindfulness, and compassion. Carmack is also Principal Communication and Well-being Researcher at the American Institutes for Research. Learn more on her website.
