Promoting Wellness MEDWell Events & Resources

Wellness is not a program; it is a culture. Our health does not have a starting or stopping point, we live our lives in our bodies 24 hours a day. MEDWell was born out of the desire to help you maintain your global health while you navigate this difficult and rewarding experience called medical school.
We offer various opportunities to promote a healthy lifestyle as well as embed wellness sessions within each conference week.
Please visit the items below for a variety of ongoing activities and recorded events and resources.

  • Nutrition in Medicine (NiM) Lecture Series

    The NiM series is now, and historically has been, driven by student interest in the power of nutrition and how it relates to human health and disease. Integral in this acquisition of information is the medical profession’s responsibility to more fully understand this important connection and, more specifically, to better care for our patients utilizing this knowledge. Each session will be presented by faculty and guest lecturers who are leaders in the field of evidence-based nutrition.

    The lectures and information provided in the NiM series are the thoughts and opinions of the lecturers. That said, a Whole Foods Plant Based (WFPB) largely unprocessed diet is the basis of the NiM lecture series. By gaining exposure to various types of science based nutrition therapies including a WFPB diet you will be provided with the knowledge to understand and treat those who follow a mainly unprocessed whole plant food lifestyle. The content of these lectures may be emotionally triggering. You are the best judge of your well-being and what works best for you and your future patients.
