Wellness

Mission and Purpose

The Wellness Committee began in February 2009 and was developed “to create a supportive environment that promotes choosing wellness & taking personal responsibility for health.” Our goals are to bring awareness and information pertaining to wellness and leading a healthy lifestyle to the entire Trocaire community via social media and seminars. Communications regarding health and wellness will be available via “What’s Happening,” digital display, signage throughout the College, and the College’s social media accounts.
