    What a timely and relevant initiative! Wellness is such a prevalent problem that has far reaching consequences in the healthcare system. I really like that this poster addresses scalability and spread in the next steps as that seems to be the "secret sauce" we've all been seeking. Are there any insights as to which unit features affected uptake? Does the data suggest that this could be applied to virtual teams? What an exciting future this work has. Thanks for sharing.

    Rosalie et al: This is a really interesting feasibility study of a Wellness support program at a time when it was really needed. It would be really interesting to monitor its sustainability and identify which aspects of the program promote its use especially after the HCW's first exposure.
