Past Event: Health and Wellness

Friday, February 21, 2014
12:30 - 1:45 p.m.
Rangos 1 and 2, University Center, Carnegie Mellon University

Carnegie Mellon is a data-driven community, so it is natural that when we come together to think about health and wellness for our campus, we look at what the research says. This discussion engaged public health professionals and CMU faculty whose research—from different disciplines and perspectives—reveals fascinating insights about how we make decisions about our health and our community.

Events which explored health and discovered wellness took place all day. Please see the schedule of events for more information.
