IOWA CITY, Iowa -- This fall, the University of Iowa
Office of Staff Development is offering three professional development
seminars where nationally recognized speakers will help attendees discover
the keys to a more successful and enjoyable work life.

lives and how to reduce it by understanding sources of stress, breaking stress
habits, and balancing daily routines with healthy choices.
