Ganjuu Open House
Friday, December 9th *4:00-5:30 PM*
Please join us for tea, coffee, and home baking! Bring yourself, your colleagues, your families and share some time, talk and listen to others. Come and see our new location! All are welcome :)
*Our location is now at the Former President's House by faculty housing and Lab 5.
We will take a closer look at the autonomic nervous system and the way our biology helps us navigate daily life, how we respond to cues of safety and danger below the level of conscious thought, and how this guides the way we move through the world, from turning toward and backing away, to connecting and other times isolating.
OIST Student Council, in collaboration with the Graduate School and OHS Safety Enhancement Month, will be hosting a 5k Fun Run on Sunday, November 13 at 10:30am.
Find out about the causes and effects of stress and hear about evidence-based ideas to help you improve and maintain wellbeing. Includes a talk by Dr. Yamamoto, OIST Occupational Doctor and Okinawan Psychiatrist about health and career balance based on the characteristics of Okinawa.
Do you want to support positive mental health and wellbeing? Do you also want to increase your steps count?
If so, then join the Ganjuu Team on Tuesday 4th October 2022 from 11am-1pm to complete the Tell Step Up for Mental Health Challenge organized by Tell Lifeline. For World Suicide Prevention Day and Mental Health Awareness Day we hope you will join us in walking 21,007 steps in honor of the 21,007 lives lost to suicide last year in Japan.
You can organize and register a team of up to 4 people using the link below. Regardless of whether you register a team you can join us on Tuesday 4th October to do the step up challenge. We plan to meet at 11am outside the entrance to Lab 4 and we can walk the challenge together around the grounds surrounding OIST.
