Wellness Is…

… a positive approach to living – an approach that emphasizes the whole person. It is the integration of the body, mind, and spirit; and the appreciation that everything you do, think, feel, and believe has an impact on your state of health.
   - definitionofwellness.comcheckmark

… a conscious, self-directed and evolving process of achieving your full potential.
   - National Wellness Institute

… the condition of good physical and mental health, especially when maintained by proper diet, exercise, and habits.
   - American Heritage Stedman’s Medical Dictionary

… a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, not merely the absence of disease of infirmity.
   - World Health Organization


Wellness at MCW

DOOR TAGAs future physicians, pharmacists, anesthesiologists and scientists, most of MCW’s students become part of the health care industry. As professionals who care for others, it is imperative to remember to take care of yourself as well.

The new MCW Student Wellness Program hosts activities such as a mindfulness meditation elective, massage sessions and therapy animal visits to relieve stress, yoga classes, cooking demos, and more...  

Students are kept abreast of everyday health tips on healthy exercise, stress relief, and nutrition via email newsletters, the MCW Student Wellness Facebook page and a brand new Student Health & Wellness website.

The Office of Student Health & Wellness works closely together with the student population through the Student Wellness Committee, which consists of student representatives from each class.


Beyond Wellness

Despite our best efforts to maintain our health, both physically and mentally, sometimes we need a little help. The Student Health & Wellness office works closely with the offices of Student Affairs, Student Mental Health, Academic Support Services and Student Support Services, who are all ready to lend a helping hand whenever you need it.
