About the program:

The Breathing Room is a casual, conversational space to unwind, heal and find community. The series began in spring 2020 as a way to maintain connections with fellow campus community members as we sheltered in place and continues as one of WLRC’s ongoing wellness initiatives. Open to everyone at UIC.
