Wellness at SUNY Canton
“Wellness is an active process through which people become aware of, and make choices toward, a more successful existence” –National Wellness Institute
Health Educator/Wellness Coordinator
The Health Educator/Wellness Coordinator provides health and wellness programming to the campus community both in groups and individually. Working with the Counseling and Davis Health Centers, programming topics include: nutrition, fitness, stress, alcohol & substance use, sexual health and all aspects of leading a healthy lifestyle.
Healthy Hops Programming
Look for the “Healthy Hops” logo to identify programs which are a part of the Wellness Initiative. The following list of programs is just a sampling.
SUNY Canton has hopped on board with ‘Healthy Mondays,’ a national non-profit campaign to encourage healthy habits every Monday. Look for Healthy Hops programming each Monday!
Monday is the start of each week, when we set our intentions for the next six days. Studies suggest we’re more likely to maintain behaviors begun on Monday, the January of every week. It’s the perfect day to make a change for your health and the health of the planet.
Meatless Mondays are offered every Monday to help the SUNY Canton community make healthier choices. Diets heavy in meat have been linked to increased cancer risk; while diets high in fruits, vegetables and whole grains may reduce cardiovascular disease & diabetes. Further, the fuel, land & water needs of livestock are vast & unsustainable over the long-term.
