AMA-MSS Week of Wellness
What is the Week of Wellness?
In conjunction with its current national service project (NSP), which focuses on Healthier Life Steps, based on the AMA's Healthier Life Steps™ program, the AMA-MSS will host its fourth annual Week of Wellness, April 1-7, 2013.
During and in the weeks leading up to the Week of Wellness, medical students from AMA medical student sections across the country will implement projects aimed at improving the health of their communities by encouraging patients to think, decide, plan, and take positive action toward leading healthier lives.
How Can My Local AMA Medical Student Section Become Involved?
- Review the AMA-MSS NSP Event Planning Guide for event ideas and to learn about resources, including grants, available to help you organize and implement a successful Week of Wellness event.
- Be sure to register your wellness event with the AMA-MSS so that we can share your success with others.
Morehouse School of Medicine is planning four weeks of events and activities to address two of the key health behaviors targeted by the AMA's Healthier Life Steps™ program: diet and physical activity. They will offer weekly kickboxing classes, individual appointments with a registered dietitian (members only), and a luncheon with a nutritionist. For more information on this project, contact Kandis Samuels.
Please contact Alexandra Norcott, AMA-MSS At-Large Officer, with any questions about the Week of Wellness.
