  • What We Offer

    • During this 1:1 session, a trained nutrition professional will assess your current diet and help identify goals to improve your diet, overall health, and well-being. If you are responsible for feeding others in your household, you’ll also receive ideas forenhancing their nutrition. Consultations will occur via phone or Zoom. 

      *Members must contact WellCats to register.

    • If you struggle to prioritize healthy behaviors (especially eating healthfully and exercising consistently), then consider attending coaching sessions. You will meet 1-on-1 with a national board-certified health and wellness coach and health and fitness professional to learn how to become more motivated, manage time, develop good habits, and improve your confidence in living a healthy lifestyle.

      *Members need to contact WellCats to sign up.

    • Note: All PAN Classes are held in FCS 187.

Recipes will be provided.
