Program Description

Now that working remotely from make-shift workstations is the new normal, self-care is needed more than ever. Philanthropy MA and the Massachusetts Nonprofit Network are working together to provide this FREE virtual session to hear from Morgan Sutherland, a certified ergonomics assessment specialist, about work from home ergonomics.

In this Work From Home Ergonomics presentation, you will learn practical ergonomic solutions to improve your comfort, productivity and keep you safe from overuse injuries while working remotely. You'll learn common risk factors for ergonomic injuries, the importance of neutral postures while working from home as well as best practices for setting up your home office workstation. You'll also learn three microbreaks that will help you recharge so you can prevent burnout. Lastly, you'll learn some effective ways to de-stress at your desk using breathwork, self-massage, and stretches.  


Reach out to Phyllis Corkum with any questions or concerns.
