Vitality

August 2021 Edition

In the spirit of being sustainable, economically efficient, and allowing instant access to the latest Vitality Employee Newsletter, we provide all issues in electronic format. The August 2021 issue of Vitality continues to be in a unique format using Microsoft Office SWAY as we find ways to improvise and meet the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. Share your thoughts on this different format via email to hrservices@dickinson.edu.
