Interested in wellness, yoga, knitting, stress management, cooking, blogging or activism? Check out Well-Woman! Well-Woman promotes the health and wellness of Barnard students through peer education, educational programming, individual health behavior consultation, campus-wide health campaigns, community outreach and advocacy. We are a resource for students to learn about their physical, mental, and spiritual health, and we work to support women’s individual self-care and the health of the community. We also educate students about how to find and use health resources at Barnard and in the community.
The most important part of Well-Woman? Our wonderful peer educators—students trained to present workshops and campus events on sexual health, nutrition, body image, healthy relationships, stress management and more in residence halls, to campus groups, and in the community. Being a part of the Peer Ed program is a great way to get involved on campus if you're interested in health and wellness.
Stop by 119 Reid (right in the Quad!) to chat with a staff member during the day or a peer educator in the evening, to browse our library, ask questions, or just relax on one of our massage chairs with a cup of tea. Or check us out online. We look forward to welcoming you to Barnard!
