Annette Clark, Program Director

The Letter of Recognition in Integrative Wellness introduces the student to an interdisciplinary, holistic (mind/body/spirit) and cross-cultural approach to self care and wellness. The Integrative model of wellness is supported by current research which demonstrates positive impact on workforce effectiveness and productivity, stress levels, and the ability to cope with chronic health issues.

Nine credits are required to complete the Letter of Recognition: 3 credits of Core Classes and 6 credits of Designated Electives. The Core Classes were chosen to provide students with an introduction to topics which reflect three aspects of integrative wellness: mind, body, and spirit. A wide variety of designated electives are offered to insure students can choose classes which meet their individual interests and needs.
