Wellness Coaching

Our team of health fitness specialists (HFS) is key to our wellness initiatives on campus. Each HFS is a credentialed, highly trained professional focused on the health and well-being of all faculty and staff.

One-on-one and face-to-face, this team systematically and continuously reaches out to individuals according to their personal needs. Through this private interactive process, your HFS can develop a wellness action plan by getting to know your individual needs. The team strives to establish trust and acts as a catalyst for healthy lifestyles and improved health. Each HFS is assigned buildings/work locations and is regularly available for screenings and private consultations.

Typical health topics include:

  • Healthy eating
  • Exercise
  • Nutrition and weight loss
  • Tobacco cessation
  • Stress
  • Sleep
  • Low back pain
