Green Wellness Program seeks participants for two new cohorts


The School of Nursing’s Green Wellness Program: Plants-2-Plate is seeking participants for two new cohorts starting this fall. The sessions for both groups will take place on Wednesdays over a span of six months.

Available cohort sessions:

  • Wednesdays at 1:30-2:30 p.m. from August 24, 2022-February 1, 2023
  • Wednesdays at 3:00-4:00 p.m. from September 21, 2022-March 8, 2023

Participants enrolled in the program are challenged to follow a whole food, plant-based nutrition plan, and will learn how to adopt a healthy lifestyle and eating pattern centered around foods that come primarily from plants, like fruits, vegetables, nuts, whole grains and legumes. The program encourages a strong support system through in-person group sessions that will allow participants to build accountability, trade recipes and learn from each other.

In addition to nutrition planning, participants are also coached on ways to reduce stress through meditation, proper sleep, yoga and journaling. The program team members include a registered nurse, nurse practitioner and registered dietitian who are experts in plant-based nutrition and wellness. 

Those interested in joining the program can register here.
