Program Overview

The mission of the HealthFirst Health and Wellness Initiative is to promote a wellness-centered, holistic approach to medical student success. The overarching goal is to facilitate a pervasive culture of well-being through the education of future doctors in wellness best practices for themselves, their future patients and the community. To this end, we have design a tripartite approach to integrating wellness elements under the pillars of exercise, nutrition and stress-management. The HealthFirst Initiative approach is to include activities that have three primary targets: the curriculum, the culture and the community through engagement.
