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 fifth annual Week of Wellness, April 7-13, 2014.
During the Week of Wellness, AMA medical student sections across the nation will learn more about healthier lifestyles so they can effectively teach their patients. Students will be putting lessons learned into practice by embracing healthy behaviors. This week will focus on 7 key topics – health eating, exercise, stress relief, motivation, altruism, preventing right brain atrophy (creativity) and alcohol moderation. Local sections are encouraged to plan their own events to promote health among medical students at their campuses and in their community.
