WELLU Upcoming Events

Pet Therapy!  - 12/10 from 11 AM – 2 PM @Somers Lounge
      o  Animals have demonstrated to improve human cardiovascular health, reduce stress, decrease loneliness and depression, and facilitate social interactions among people who choose to have pets. Pet interaction, whether active or passive, tends to lower anxiety levels in subjects, and thus decrease the onset, severity, or progression of stress-related conditions.  Join Pam and her dogs for Pet therapy on Monday, December 10, 2012 from 11:00-2:00pm in Somers Lounge.  Free snacks will be provided during the event.  This event is free and everyone is welcome!
