Free and Open to All

Come to campus for Highline’s Week of Wellness, May 2–5, 2016, designed to promote the importance of emotional and physical health as central to success.

United by the theme “Resiliency Through Wellness,” four wellness-themed programs will encourage you to live a more positive and holistic life while reducing stress and anxiety.

The free lectures and interactive workshops will be held on Highline’s main campus and led by campus experts.

“The goal is to help students and community members identify what wellness means to them and ways to define wellness despite life’s challenges,” said Adam-Jon Aparicio, who is a faculty counselor in Highline’s Counseling Center and helped establish the program at the college last year.

Week of Wellness is sponsored by Highline’s Counseling Center.
