Wellness at Home


Taking Care of Your Health and Well-being During the COVID-19 Pandemic

As we establish new routines and navigate challenges, it can be difficult to maintain our health and well-being. With social distancing in place, it has changed the way we study, socialize, and how we take care of ourselves. The Center for Health Education & Wellness has developed virtual Weekly Wellness Classes and compiled online resources to promote well-being and provide opportunities to connect remotely with each other through wellness activities. 

CHEW's Weekly Wellness Classes Open to Students, Faculty & Staff- 

Class details and Zoom codes are on Royal Sync or email chew@scranton.edu
