A uterus and fallopian tubes with yellow, pink, and red flowers coming out the top, on a pink background with yellow wildflowers. At the top is the title of the event in orange and red text. In the middle, next to the uterus, is text describing the event (same text on this page). At the bottom are the co-hosting organizations' logos.

About the program:

The Breathing Room is a casual, conversational space to unwind, heal, and find community. The series began in spring 2020 as a way to maintain connections with fellow campus community members as we sheltered in place and continues as one of WLRC's ongoing wellness initiatives. Open to everyone at UIC!
