Pod Resources

Semel HCI’s seven thematic workgroups, called pods, work to promote the “healthy choice as the easy choice”. One way they do so is by curating health and well-being resources in their area of work: built environment (BEWell), tobacco-free environment (BreatheWell), food and nutrition (EatWell), social well-being and relationships (EngageWell), mental health (MindWell), physical activity (MoveWell), and research (ResearchWell).
