Healthy Hawks

Healthy Hawks is an 8-week healthy lifestyle choices program which offers individualized and group resources to Viterbo employees and students. The program will promote various aspects of the 7 dimensions of wellness. Educational sessions and group activities will be offered to aid in nutrition and other applicable lifestyle goals.  Each educational session will be provided in hopes of engaging both beginner health advocates and more advanced personnel.

Group activities are provided for those who might thrive in a more social setting, as well as many opportunities for the participants who might choose a more individualized setting. Whatever your personal goals are, this program is available to all fitness levels!

Fall 2018 programming will take place for 8 weeks, beginning on Tuesday, September 18. Opportunities to participate will continue until November 9, ending with an end of the semester gathering filled with fun to celebrate all the hard work by participants!
