Health & Wellbeing Options at CHI

As part of the CHI on-the-ground experience, we’re doing our best to provide restorative opportunities for everyone.

A few innovations we’re attempting this year include:

  • Standing areas in papers sessions.
  • Standing/pacing areas in the plenary hall so that you can get up from your seat and move about a bit during the main sessions.
moving and working on different levels during breaks – great for spine and the brain to which it connects
  • A decompression room with beanbag loungers where you can just get quiet for a bit.
  • great big conference hall where you can be sure to get your daily walking in by going from one session to another.
    • We’re encouraging people to tweet to #chi2018 the step counts between main areas in the hall just so you can get a sense of all that good movement between sessions
  • A map that has many resources like lunch and breakfast places – and soon where we’ll be plotting food stores in the surrounding area, should you wish to supplement your conference fodder with any seasonal vegetables or fruit not on site.
  • A blog to support your Health and Wellbeing before and during CHI: to help you #getFit4CHI before the conference begins and to enhance your experience at the conference – your Health Chair’s getFit4 blog is over at Medium (comments welcome, and keep an eye on social media for new posts).
fun just to hang around – with or without the VR glasses

For questions, please contact m.c. schraefel, your Health/Fitness Chair.
