Living Health Week: Spring 2023

Living Health Week, put on by Emory's Center for the Study of Human Health, takes place every semester. It’s a week where we encourage students to celebrate their progress in all aspects of health, and a time to appreciate those that help us maintain that health.

Having a sense of purpose in life is positively correlated with physical and mental health benefits. This Living Health Week, join Emory University Purpose Professor Dr. Christine Whelan on a journey to create your personalized purpose statement. This can be a daily purpose statement or a purpose statement for the semester, the year, or even your college career. What matters is that you are embracing a purpose mindset for your health.

The Spring 2023 semester's Living Health Week took place from February 13-17, 2023. That doesn't mean that you missed out though. Click the link below to participate in the exercise around purpose.
