Wellness is a multidimensional state of being that describes the process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a more positive existence. In order to be well, it takes much more than nutrition and physical activity. True wellness is a full integration of all of the following states of wellness: physical, emotional, intellectual, occupational, environmental, social, and spiritual. Each one of these dimensions interacts in a way that influences our own quality of life.
The HealthPoint Wellness Program is part of Human Resources. The overall goal of the HealthPoint Wellness Program is to improve the health and well-being of faculty and staff. We accomplish our mission through improving policies and the environment to make it easier to be healthy on campus. We also provide educational opportunities and wellness programs.
