At UNMC, we make wellness a priority for our students, faculty and staff.
Through programs, talks and activities, UNMC keeps a constant focus on living healthfully and performing to the best of our ability. From our newly upgraded on-site fitness facility and counseling programs to professional development and campus events, UNMC encompasses wellness in every way, emphasizing that it is defined as "a dynamic process of learning new life skills and becoming aware of and making conscious choices toward a more balanced and healthy lifestyle."
Wellness as a lifestyle is described by a model, in which each of eight dimensions influences our sense of well-being or quality of life, and each affects and overlaps with one another.
