The Fourth Annual Health, Fitness and Wellness Fair at WCSU will be from noon to 3 p.m. on Tuesday, April 2, in the Bill Williams Gym in Berkshire Hall on the WCSU Midtown campus. A popular annual event, the fair features local holistic practitioners and health-related organizations demonstrating their areas of expertise, often with free samples.

IHHS Director Christel Autuori planned the spring semester slate of events.

Autuori said, “The holistic and integrative approach to health and wellness is multifaceted and multidimensional. The word holistic relates to the whole person — body, mind and spirit — and encompasses many aspects and factors relating to health. The integrative approach blends the best of our conventional Western medical practices with the best of the non-Western (the alternative or complementary) healing modalities. The holistic and integrative approach to health, therefore, addresses the whole person and utilizes and delivers the best of Western medicine combined with the best of the non-Western modalities and practices: the best of both worlds intertwined in unified treatment plan.”

The IHHS is housed within the Department of Health Promotion and Exercise Sciences (HPX) at WCSU. It encourages the community to explore different aspects of holistic and integrative health through programming and instruction while promoting conventional healing and various traditional, modern and alternative practices.
