Wide range of topics during free Week of Wellness at Highline College

DES MOINES, Wash. — The public is invited to a series of free events during Week of Wellness at Highline College, May 25, 2016, designed to promote the importance of emotional and physical health as central to success. United by the theme “Resiliency Through Wellness,” four wellness-themed programs will encourage attendees to live more positive and holistic lives while reducing stress and anxiety. The free lectures and interactive workshops will be led by campus experts.

“The goal is to help students and community members identify what wellness means to them and ways to define wellness despite life’s challenges,” said Adam-Jon Aparicio, who is a faculty counselor in Highline’s Counseling Center and helped establish the program at the college last year.

Week of Wellness is sponsored by Highline’s Counseling Center. All events will be held on the college’s main campus, located midway between Seattle and Tacoma at South 240th Street and Pacific Highway South (Highway 99); address: 2400 S. 240th St., Des Moines, Wash.
