Wow, we’re heading into Spring Semester, 2016. Here are some Community Wellness highlights from last semester!

Peer Health Advocates made three zines that covered different aspects of health and wellness:

  • The zines are small brochures that PHAs create around one topic. This last semester, the topics covered were: ways to take a break, introvert & extrovert and sleep.
  • Be on the lookout for more zines second semester!

Weekly events, such as Reedies Unwind and Meditation, helped 225 students unwind and decompress last semester.

  • Reedies Unwind is a weekly event that is held in GCC 103. Stop by and craft with PHAs; as always, tea and snacks are provided.
  • More event details coming soon!

The Tea + Pie saga continued with 3 faculty talks about wellness, hosted by the PHAs and Community Wellness.

  • Tea + Pie events feature a short talk by a selected faculty member(s) and are followed with a Q&A.
  • Oh, and of course there is pie!
Community Wellness has some great events in store for you this semester! Subscribe to the Community Wellness calendar to stay updated.

Olivia Kilgore

photo of Olivia KilgoreHi, I’m Olivia and I am a senior sociology major. I am very excited to be working with Community Wellness as both a Peer Health Advocate and a Program Intern! I take a particular interest in finding creative ways of getting exercise (such as dance fitness classes), as well as sexual health and harm reduction. I also value inclusivity and diversity in all conversations surrounding health. Outside of this, I enjoy space, film, flowers and spending time with my wonderful dog. Feel free to email me if you have any questions, concerns or ideas about wellness at Reed!
