Women Living Well Seminar

Mind and Body Connection

Women Living Well is a six-week seminar addressing women's health care and wellness issues. The seminar is designed for women in the Bryn Mawr College community and as a cross generational forum. The program began in the spring of 2000 as a joint venture among the Alumnae Association, the Graduate School of Social Work and Social Research, and the Department of Athletic and Physical Education, and has since partnered with the Center for Science and Society. The focus of the seminar is to educate, discuss, engage, and encourage women in the Bryn Mawr College community to be knowledgeable stewards of their health care and well being.

For further information, contact Amy Campbell, Director of Athletics and Physical Education.
