In addition to students having the opportunity to connect to a variety of wellness resources in our community, and to attend interesting wellness seminars, NCWD is also a great networking venue for students interested in internships, volunteer work and employment in the wellness arena. The organizations, representing both for-profit and non-profit business sectors, are present and ready to talk with students.
Dori Decker, one of the organizers from UMD Health Services said, “Students can expect to walk away with tools to enhance their own wellness, ideas for getting involved in wellness opportunities in the community, and new connections that may serve to provide internships and employment.”
Students can leave with new information about our community, such as where to go for low-cost preventative dental care, what plants they can grow to attract bees, how to compost, and resources for financial planning.
