Dr. Nicoleta Dragan speaks in front of a crowd

SBVC's Student Health Services hosted a special event for International Women's Day on March 12, focused on empowering the physical and mental well-being of those who attended while providing a platform for students, faculty, and staff to come together and reflect on the accomplishments, challenges, and aspirations of women around the world.

The event's guest speaker was Dr. Nicoleta Dragan, co-founder of Beingfuliyou, a provider of courses tailored to educators to enhance their overall well-being. Dragan focused on the concept of self-compassion, which—in her research and practice—can lead to many positive outcomes, including increased psychological wellbeing, self-efficacy, motivation, selfworth and positive interpersonal relationships.
