Overview

Why Health & Wellness at The American Women’s College?

Health and wellness positions are critical, as organizations and employers work to develop, implement, and sustain comprehensive wellness initiatives.

Health and wellness positions are predicted to grow by 27% as health concerns and healthy living continues to grow in importance in the minds of the American consumer. In the past, these positions were most often associated with fitness and nutrition centers or organizations. Furthermore, the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM) has listed a new type of position that is growing among employers across the nation. SHRM describes this position as a “management-level individual who leads a company’s wellness efforts—defining the wellness mission in an organization and working to improve health and well-being companywide.”
