WEBINARS

Mental health break (trivia!)

Thursday, May 13, 1-1:15 p.m. CST

What to expect: Regional Wellness Coordinator Morgan will be leading trivia and the top three will be awarded a WFHTN stress ball! We will be playing trivia using the platform “Kahoot” (www.kahoot.it). In order to get the most out of Kahoot, it is ideal to use a second screen, such as a phone that has access to the internet or a second computer monitor. This is because you need to be able to see both the WebEx screen (to see the questions/answers) and your personal Kahoot screen (to answer the questions). The game PIN will be provided the day of trivia. Come and play!
