What is lifestyle wellness?

Lifestyle wellness encompasses everything you do to engage in a lifestyle that is optimal for you – at every age and stage of your life. A lifestyle where your mental state, behavioral state, and body state are aligned to not only treat – but prevent – conditions like diabetes, obesity, and cardiovascular disease.

Lifestyle wellness allows you to live and experience your best life.

Our team is engaged in cutting-edge research, clinical interventions, and education that leverage our nutrition-based expertise to promote all aspects of lifestyle wellness, including:

  • Teaching our students and community how to engage in lifestyle choices that promote healthy living
