Health and Wellness Week Health and Wellness Week

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we regretfully announce this year's Health and Wellness Week event has been canceled. The good news is, we will be back in 2021! Check back next spring to see our free class and activity offerings.

Why a Health and Wellness Week?

Yamhill County is clearly a desirable place to live, yet many in our area face significant medical and health challenges. According to Yamhill County Health and Human Services …

  • 62.2 percent of the county’s adult population was considered either “overweight” or “obese” in 2016.
  • 7.5 percent of our population is coping with diabetes.
  • Heart disease (19 percent) is the second-leading cause of death in the county and many in our community struggle with high blood pressure.

Here’s the good news: Many of these health challenges are preventable and can be reversed. George Fox University’s Health and Wellness Week is a tangible way to assist community members in their pursuit of healthy living. Let’s see if we can make a positive change in the health and wellness of Newberg.
