Health and Fitness Clinic

NEP clinic

The 2017-2018 academic year Health and Fitness Clinic will start around the beginning of October 2017. Stay tuned for exact dates.

The goal of the NEP Health & Fitness clinic is to help you take steps to reduce your risk factors for chronic disease, such as diabetes, cancer and heart disease by improving eating habits and increasing physical activity. The Clinic is the experiential learning component of the NEP senior year practicum courses (NEP 479/482) that provide students with hands-on experience in exercise and nutrition assessment, counseling and programming.

The Clinic will run on Mondays and Wednesdays from 12:10 p.m. – 1:40 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. for the 2016-2017 academic year. These four blocks of time are designed so that clinic participation is flexible and individualized to your personal goals.
