The UCLA Healthy Campus Initiative invites you to attend a TEDxUCLA Salon exploring Eudaimonia — what it is and why more of it is needed – from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 26, in Pauley Pavilion Club.

Eudaimonia (yüdēˈmōnēə) is a Greek term central to Aristotelian ethics and political philosophy, describing a sustained form of well-being that goes along with finding meaning and purpose in life. Eudaimonia can also mean human flourishing.

Featured speakers include:

  • Meb Keflezighi, four-time U.S. Olympian, winner of the 2014 Boston Marathon and the 2009 New York City Marathon, four-time NCAA champion and UCLA alumnus;
  • Robert Bilder, professor-in-residence and clinical psychologist in the UCLA Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences;
  • and professor Bruce Chorpita, clinical psychologist and mental health researcher in UCLA’s Department of Psychology.

Following the TEDxUCLA Salon, the U.S. Olympian will be honored with the i0naugural UCLA Eudaimonia Award in recognition of his exemplary commitment to health and excellence.

This event will include a live mindful music performance, complimentary refreshments and photo opportunities with Keflezighi.

Envisioned and supported by Jane and Terry Semel, the Healthy Campus Initiative is committed to making UCLA the healthiest campus in America. Admission is free of charge and open to the public. Reservations can be made online, as seating is limited.
