Wellness @ Case

Over the years, the cost of health care has steadily been increasing. National health spending is expected to reach $2.5 trillion in 2009 according to the National Coalition on Healthcare. There is evidence that many of the leading causes of death, illness and disability are due to modifiable and potentially avoidable behaviors. Therefore, Case views implementation of a university wide wellness program not as an option but a necessity. On behalf of the Department of Human Resources, the wellness team invites you to share in our enthusiasm as we move toward an enhanced wellness program targeted to improve the health and wellbeing of each and every employee. Join us as we team up with other wellness enthusiasts across campus to offer activities, educational seminars to increase our understanding of the importance of good health and improve our health habits accordingly.  Read more >>>

National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

As the most common form of cancer in women, and the second cause of cancer deaths, chances are, each of us knows someone who has battled or died from breast cancer.

Though its effects are far reaching, there is much we can do to prevent this disease. Increased awareness, early detection, screenings and improved treatment have all contributed to decreased incidences of breast cancer. According to reports from the American Cancer Society, breast cancer has declined 2 percent a year since 1990. Please read more on breast cancer and what you can do to help.
