Welcome to Health Promotion
The Health Promotion program provides Appalachian State University staff, faculty, and their spouses/domestic partners with information, programs, and services that help to promote a healthier lifestyle and a better quality of life. Major components of the program include health and fitness, preventive care, and outreach programs.

Do you know the difference between “Health” and “Wellness?”
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease.” Health is not only the physical well-being; it encompasses one’s emotional and social fitness as well. Wellness, on the other hand, is “the active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life.”
Be a part of Health Promotion’s Health and Wellness incentive program, during the month of June. Health Promotion will offer a variety of opportunities to enlighten you about your health and wellness through stress management, preventive care measures, educational means, recreational and social activities.
