Wisdom & Well-Being Speaker Series

The Wisdom & Well-Being Speaker Series are on hold at UVA during the COVID-19 pandemic.


The Wisdom & Well-Being Speaker Series was created by the UVA Center for Appreciative Practice to foster discussion among members of the health care community. These are academic discussions that are outside of our normal conversations and approach health in a more holistic way. What are the elements of well-being? What contributes to the development of wisdom? How does the interplay of these factors contribute to an individual living a rich and fulfilling life? How do these ideas translate to the wisdom and well-being of an organization? The speakers for this series are renowned individuals who are posing, considering and researching questions that help develop insight into individual, collective and organizational wisdom and well-being.
