Program Information

The Holistic Health & Wellness Education Program was developed by Jennifer Lawson in 2013 in order to bring the valuable information learned in the Metropolitan State University Integrative Therapeutic Practices degree program to at-risk communities. Through education and community outreach, Jennifer seeks to promote a holistic approach to health. As a lifestyle controlled diabetic, Jennifer wants to educate individuals in order to prevent these types of illnesses - especially in aging and disadvantaged communities. As of now, HHWEP has one instructor as well as two board members. The passionate team members supporting HHWEP include a Registered Nurse, an Aromatherapist, and an Aesthetician & Reiki Master.

The program seeks to educate individuals of any demographic in wellness and self-care practices to help reduce their depression, obesity, cardiovascular disease and diabetes rates. By improving overall health outcomes for individuals, HHWEP helps to reduce healthcare costs. The program increases dependence on healthy eating and active lifestyles as a way to promote personal and community health. All class hand-outs and materials are accessible for a variety of education levels. In addition, the self-care techniques are approachable and easy to incorporate into daily routines.

Classes first began in February of 2014. The reception to the program has been phenomenal so far. Within these communities, the program has helped to inspire and empower individuals to take control of their health and their life. Not only does it help people individually, the program has enhanced the sense of community by creating a safe environment to discuss health issues. Ultimately, HHWEP wants to expand into a variety of locations with a special focus on at-risk populations such as the elderly and low-income communities.

Why help us?

America's healthcare costs keep rising and rising, yet the overall health of the nation is getting worse and worse. Currently in America chronic conditions such as diabetes, obesity, and heart disease are on the rise. These chronic conditions are the largest consumer of health care funding yet they are often preventable or manageable through self-care practices and lifestyle changes. However, many individuals go through life unaware that there are alternative approaches to health and wellness. HHWEP seeks to educate individuals so they can make the best decisions for their long-term health. Your donation is an investment in the health and wellness of Colorado's communities. By educating and empowering individuals, we can heal communities – mind, body and soul.
