Rutgers Cooperative Extension (RCE) will host a stop on a 10,000 mile road trip, The Road to Financial Wellness, a local grassroots and social media campaign designed to turn local discussions about money into a national conversation on financial wellbeing. The Rutgers stop will be Thurs., June 4, from 2 to 3 p.m., in the Cook Office Building on the George H. Cook Campus in New Brunswick.
According to Rutgers Cooperative Extension Specialist in Financial Resource Management Barbara O’Neill, the Rutgers stop will feature the seminar “Money & Mindset: The Road to Financial Wellness” as well as the recorded financial stories “from the road.” RCE welcomes participants to this important conversation but are encouraging those interested in attending to send an email to O’Neill at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“We’re pleased to be able to welcome Phroogal and to be a part of this very relevant conversation about money on its cross county road trip to promote financial wellness during the entire month of June,” says O’Neill.
