CALS Wellness Initiative

Activities and Events

While we mainly promote existing events to the CALS community, there are a few that we organize ourselves:

We also promote activities that departments can do to build healthy habits! (For example, smoothie day!) Let us know if there are any activities you would us to share or promote! Email wellness@cals.wisc.edu.

Nutrition Lunch and Learns

The CALS Wellness Committee joined with the students of the Dietetics and Nutrition Club jointly to present nutrition-themed Lunch and Learns for faculty, staff and students. The Lunch and Learns cover hot topics in nutrition, such as supplements, meal prep and myth-busting, and often include a snack and/or cooking demonstration. We usually hold about three Lunch and Learns per semester that are open to anyone, but if you are interested in having the DNC give a special presentation to your unit/department, send us an email: wellness@cals.wisc.edu
