In fact, Sal facilitated one of the workshops at the 2022 Faculty/Staff Institute – Living a Healthy Lifestyle. Since that time there have been many requests for Sal to present on this topic that includes things like; better sleep, mindfulness, movement, and nutrition, for which more than 75 students, staff, and faculty have attended. Sal is humble and to quote him he says, “I am proud to do this so employees and students can be their very best not only in their job, their studies, but in life.” Sal makes a positive difference.
