Mindfulness in Focused Inquiry and Active Minds


For the November edition of the COBE Connect lunch lecture series, we hosted two separate lectures spotlighting different ongoing projects and partnerships on campus.

Andrea Nguyen and Gopika Hari of Active Minds at VCU present at the November COBE Connect event about creating synergy between faculty, researchers and student organizations like Active Minds at VCU which focuses on mental health and student wellbeing.

University College Advisor Elizabeth Bambacus and Assistant Director for Public Health Research and Education Dr. Amanda McGann of The Well at VCU present on their study that brings mindfulness exercises into the classroom for first semester freshmen.

COBE Connect occurs the first Tuesday of every month in the Student Commons at Virginia Commonwealth University. If you’d like to find out more information, email Tom Bannard at bannardtn@vcu.edu.
