Women on Wellness Retreats
The Center of Excellence in Women's Health (CoE) works with communities to develop community partnerships. These partnerships reach women of all social economic and ethnic groups and link them to the resources in their community through the Women on Wellness Program. Women on Wellness (WOW) is an interactive, one-day behavioral change retreat designed to help women make lasting, positive lifestyle changes for themselves and for their families. The retreat will give women the tools to assess their own health and build/plan their own journey towards enduring wellness.
"When women are fully involved, the benefits can be seen immediately: families are healthier, they are better fed, and their income, savings and reinvestments go up. And what is true of families is true of communities and eventually, whole countries."
~Kofi Annan, former UN Secretary General
With a focus on prevention, WOW stresses that no two women start at the same place and it teaches each retreat participant how to develop and prioritize a set of goals and strategies. Each woman will leave the retreat with her own personal lifestyle plan.
