Website Tips

Check this page often to see new features as they are added to this website. The Health and Wellness Center Wellness site is currently a site that will expand over time in order to build a more comprehensive profile of your health.

Use this new feature to keep track of your nicotine and alcohol habits. You can also record detailed information about your cravings.

The Health and Wellness Center Diet and Exercise Planner
There's a new section on Your Wellness Menu! Beneath the Health Information section, there is now a Diet and Exercise Planner. This tool consists of six components: Browse Exercises, Search Exercises, View My Exercises, Get Exercise Recommendations, Track Exercises, and Track Meals. You can use all of these components to help you plan out an exercise regimen suited to your needs, as well as register your exact caloric intake according to USDA standards. All of the exercises and foods that you log will be registered in Your Wellness Profile, so that you can more easily manage all of your Wellness information. Please note, however, that while the Meal Tracker already has more than 1000+ food items in its database, more are currently being registered. The database will grow over the next few days, until there are approximately 7,000 food items for you to track. Have fun with these tools, and good luck!
