Promoting Wellness

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 weekly and monthly activities to promote a healthy lifestyle as well as embed wellness sessions within each conference week.

  • Nutrition in Medicine (NiM)

    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. Though students are largely involved with the topic selection of the two-year-long NiM series, each session will be presented by faculty and guest lecturers who are leaders in the field of evidence-based nutrition.
