Healthy Campus Week is Coming to Georgia Tech

Campus Recreation (CRC) and Health Initiatives are collaborating with Partnership for a Healthier America’s (PHA) Healthy Campus Initiative to host Healthy Campus Week. The goal of this week-long effort is to engage the Georgia Tech community with the departments and resources that focus on health and well-being.

PHA’s Healthier Campus Initiative was implemented to provide college students, faculty, and staff with the necessary tools and tips to promote a healthy environment. PHA has worked to become partners with more than 50 colleges and universities across the nation who have committed to completing specific healthy campus guidelines. Georgia Tech was recognized last year as one of PHA’s completing partners.

Healthy Campus Week will be held September 23-27, 2019, with daily wellness events and activities that all students, faculty, and staff are invited to participate in. Below you will find a schedule detailing what can be expected for the week.
