Health & Wellness

At William & Mary we’re committed to the health and wellbeing of our community. We know that health isn’t just about your physical well-being — it includes your emotional, financial, environmental, intellectual, occupational, social and spiritual health as well. Together counselors and coaches, trainers and teachers, doctors and nurses, classmates and friends are all passionate about caring for one another and helping each other flourish.
