Embark on a Journey of Well-being at HBCUs Nationwide!
Embark on a Journey of Well-being at HBCUs Nationwide! The Boris Lawrence Henson Foundation is excited to introduce Wellness Wednesdays, a transformative program designed exclusively for Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) students. BLHF aims to bring the healing and restorative power of our Integrative Wellness Hangouts to every HBCU campus within the next five years.
Your Well-being, Our Priority
We understand that the students at HBCUs are not just the future of our country but also the bearers of a rich and vital legacy.
We must equip them with the tools to thrive academically, physically, and mentally. With Wellness Wednesdays, each HBCU community can choose one Wednesday a month dedicated to relaxation, exploration, introspection, and embracing the elements of mindfulness through the mind-body connection.
We know that each college and university community is unique, and therefore, the needs of its students will differ. Our program is designed to be flexible and adaptable, allowing each institution to customize its Wellness Wednesday’s offering from a range of carefully curated programming choices. From yoga and meditation to nutrition and mental health workshops, the options are vast and varied.
