The Road to Wellness DVD Series
The Road to Wellness Series
Bike riders on road
In July, 2007, the ODOT Office of Employee Safety launched its health promotion program: On the Road to Wellness, encouraging proactive health choices for ODOT employees.  The program will feature a series of DVDs, prepared by the ODOT Photo and Video Unit, which can be borrowed from the ODOT Library.  Clicking on the video titles will take you to the catalog record, which allows you to request the item automatically if you have a library account (e-mail the librarian to set up a new account or to retrieve account information).
New videos will be added to the library catalog as they become available.
