Nutrition, Health and Wellness, Minor
A healthy lifestyle, including a holistic approach to food and exercise, is encouraged for persons to lead a robust life. An evidence-based approach to health and wellness is important to balance the abundance of information surrounding this topic and to encourage lifelong learning. Saint Louis University's Nutrition, Health and Wellness minor aligns with the Jesuit principle of "Cura Personalis" — the development of a whole person, mind, body and spirit.
