Office of Well-Being (EmWELL)


The Woodruff Health Sciences Center (WHSC) established the Office of Well-Being in January 2022. The office is a central resource and the first of its kind for the entire Woodruff Health Sciences Center, which includes Emory Healthcare. The focus of the office is to lead the design, direction and implementation of well-being programs that address the current environmental stressors among clinicians, health professionals, faculty and staff in clinical, research and academic health sciences areas.

The goals of the office include facilitating system-wide changes that enable team members to effectively practice in a culture that prioritizes and promotes wellness and professional fulfillment while optimizing the function of Emory’s health system and establishing a robust well-being research foundation.

The office is led by Co-Chief Well-Being Officers Tim Cunningham, RN, DrPH, and Chad Ritenour, MD.
