Drury to Offer Wellness Certificate for Students

Drury University is launching a program to increase the health and wellness of its students. KSMU’s Rebekah Clark has more.

 

Starting in the fall, incoming freshmen will have the chance to earn a certificate based on a curriculum developed between the Cleveland Medical Clinic and Drury.

Students who finish the undergraduate program will get seven hours of school credit, according to a press release from Drury. The goals of the program are to improve the health of both students and the communities they work for.

If admitted, students are required to complete one class per semester on topics like diet, exercise, stress management, and gender specific health issues. 

In the final year of the program, students will go into the community to work with businesses, schools and non-profits to help develop wellness programs there.

For KSMU News, I'm Rebekah Clark.
