Health And Wellness

Faculty and staff at Dana Hall know that the health and wellness of their students is integral to academic and overall success. With that in mind, the School's health goals are simple:  encourage confidence and self-empowerment in Dana students and strengthen their ability to have sound judgment and make healthy decisions.
Health and Wellness programming affirms the “whole student” and and gives her the tools she needs for a healthy and meaningful life. Members of the Health and Wellness Committee work to insure that the program takes a collaborative and interdisciplinary approach, through a variety of programs, events and facilitators.

Greetings from the Peer Education Co-Heads

We are S. Lagarde '21 and Z. Szeman '21, the Co-Heads of Peer Education for the 2020-2021 school year! We are super excited to get this year started. We thought that a fun way to introduce all of our members would be a video compilation from our first training, which was held on Thursday, September 24! Which is attached below.

This year is going to look a little different but it is a perfect opportunity to start new things; such as our committees. We have three groups: Monthly Email Ccommittee, who sends emails about the months important topics. The PSA Instagram Committee, who will post quick snippets about upcoming events or reminders in general on @TheDanaDragon. And lastly, we have the Hallmanac Committee, who will work with the newspaper to publish Health and Wellness articles! 

We hope that everyone has a great year and if you ever need anything, remember: the Peer Ed members are always available to listen!
