Wellness and Health Promotion

Why Wellness/Health Promotion?

College campuses across our nation are focusing their attention to creating a healthier campus and healthier students. Edmonds Community College is one of those campuses!  We are committed to the inclusion of the overall well-being of our students, staff and campus community.

Our efforts support academic success, productivity, retention and life-long learning. We hope to aid our community to achieve health equity, eliminate disparities and improve the health of our entire campus community.
