OWWL: Older Women’s Wellness for Life 2020

Formerly the Alumni Health and Wellness Program

The OWWL Program (Older Women’s Wellness for Life) is a 2-day event designed for women ages 55 and older to invest in themselves. The weekend includes health and fitness assessments, along with a personalized physical activity/exercise program. Participants will also attend lectures and workshops on topics related to nutrition, motivation, and the importance of physical activity for women's health

The 2020 Older Women’s Wellness for Life Program has been cancelled in accordance with recommendations from the CDC and JMU regarding COVID-19.

OWWL 2019 in Review

The 2019 program was a huge success! Participants participated in clinical and exercise testing, a cooking demonstration, a interval training/dance class, and yoga. Additionally, they heard discussions focused on the impact of loneliness on wellness and diabetes. Before leaving, each participant received a personalized exercise prescription created by JMU exercise science students. These prescriptions along with their testing results were explained and demonstrated thoroughly by the Morrison Bruce Center staff. We look forward to next year’s program – stay tuned for updates!

Many alumni will receive program information in the mail; however, please feel free to contact the Morrison Bruce Center at morrisonbrucecenter@jmu.edu if you have any questions.
