Fall Innovator Meeting Overview

The fall Innovator meeting was held on September 22 in the OSU-STW Student Union.  Innovators from various departments, offices and campuses were in attendance.  It was great to be able to connect with other Innovators, and the meeting was very productive.  Those in attendance had the opportunity to meet and speak with OSU’s new Chief Wellness Officer, Dr. Todd Misener. The meeting included conversations about future Innovator trainings, Certified Health Department applications, and innovator recommendations. A few highlights from the discussion include:

·         Value of posting events on the Innovator Facebook page

·         Moving from monthly webinars to quarterly meetings

·         Creating an archive of Innovator newsletters

·         Recommendations for future Innovator trainings

The feedback shared was very much appreciated, and will be used to guide the future of the program. Thank you to those who had the opportunity to participate in the fall Innovator meeting!
