Sleep Health and Wellness Program: Upcoming Sessions
The Sleep Matters Initiative’s Sleep Health and Wellness Program is a nationally recognized sleep education program that builds on 15 years of Brigham-led sleep research. This one-hour wellness program covers sleep health, the dangers of fatigue and strategies for improving sleep and ending exhaustion. Upcoming sessions include dates in February, March, April and May; all begin at noon, and lunch will be provided. Free for Brigham faculty, staff and trainees. For more information, including registration details, visit BWHPikeNotes.org or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Code Help Desktop Alerts Begin Feb. 3
Starting Monday, Feb. 3, all Brigham and Women’s Hospital workstations will receive a pop-up desktop alert through the Partners Employee Alert System when Code Help is activated. Code Help, a Department of Public Health mandate, is activated when the Emergency Department (ED) has exceeded capacity and a large number of boarders are awaiting inpatient beds. This measure will help ensure that all employees with specific duties during Code Help are aware of the ED’s status and can act accordingly. Learn more at BWHPikeNotes.org.

In celebration of the American Heart Association’s National Wear Red Day on Friday, Feb. 7, the Brigham invites faculty, staff and trainees to wear red clothing to work that day to raise awareness about cardiovascular disease. Send photos of you or your team wearing red on Feb. 7 to email@example.com. Photos will be featured on the hospital’s digital signage and BWHPikeNotes.org throughout the day.
