On April 2 from 11am to 2pm, Western Connecticut State University’s (WCSU) Institute for Holistic Health Studies will hold the 12th Annual Holistic Health Fair. In the past, there have been over 40 exhibitors presenting information on varied topics including meditation, nutrition, tai chi, yoga, Tibetan singing bowls and more. Reiki masters will be providing 15-minute experiential sessions.

The health fair is free and open to the public. Donations will be accepted to support the health fair and other events, as well as student awards. Exhibitor opportunities are still available.

The Institute for Holistic Health Studies is housed within WCSU’s Department of Health Promotion and Exercise Sciences (HPX). The institute’s mission is to provide the university and the Greater Danbury area with an opportunity to engage in and explore the different aspects of holistic health through programming and instruction. Events for this spring include a weekly meditation, Wellness Wednesday Workshops and more.

The HPX department offers two baccalaureate degree programs: Health Education Pre-K–12 and Health Promotion Studies (HPS). The HPS degree has two options – Community Health and Wellness Management and a Holistic Health option to begin in fall 2015.
