The Del Mar College Counseling Center will host a “Be Well” Luncheon downstairs in the Harvin Student Center from 12:30-1 p.m. Sept. 29. Students will be provided with information on maintaining fitness and health, both physical and mental; developing healthy nutrition and exercise habits; and connecting students with resources to clinics. The focus will be on preventive health measures and how to better care for yourself.screen-shot-2016-09-23-at-3-47-38-pm

Students will also be provided with lunch but must RSVP at least a day in advance and remember that space is limited. The Counseling Center also provides students with an attendance stamp card called a RAK card. Once they have accumulated six stamps they will be entered into a raffle for a $15 Viking Dollar Meal Card to Campus Dining. Attendance at the “Be Well” event will earn students a stamp to their card.

“Even one takeaway can greatly improve a student’s life. It can make a huge difference,” said Johanna Torres, a counselor with the center. “Last semester I only had four students, this semester I had 10, so this is a program that is growing.”
