HPX Faculty & Staff Wellness Program

The HPX Department, in partnership with the Institute for Holistic Health Studies, is excited to continue offering Wellness Workshops for the 3rd consecutive year.  In hopes of meeting the scheduling needs for more of the community, we have scheduled the workshops on Wednesdays (12:30-1:30 PM) and Thursdays (4:30-5:30 PM) this semester.  Professionals from on campus and in the community will be presenting various topics related to YOUR health and wellness! Each workshop will involve an informational component and an experiential component.

The fall, 2013 Wellness Workshop schedule is outlined below.  All of the workshops meet on the first floor of Warner Hall.  Contact Emily Stevens, the program coordinator (7-3903, stevense@wcsu.edu), to RSVP for the events and with any questions or suggestions.
