Preventing Back Pain Video

Cecilia Chen, a Cornell University student and dietetic intern in our Child Nutrition Program, created a video with tips for preventing back pain. Although the video was created for Food Service staff, all employees may find it helpful!

Wellness Videos

The ICSD continues to support staff wellness! Now more than ever, it is critical to find ways to take care of yourself. A few members of our Wellness Committee have created videos that address emotional and physical well-being for you to choose from. We hope to provide additional choices in the future and look forward to all being together again soon.
