Join Duke women for a day of health and mindfulness at the beautiful Duke Student Wellness Center (DuWell). The event will kick off with a talk on ways to maximize your health and wellness by Diana Bures McNeill '78, MD'82, HS'88, P'08, P'10, P'14, professor of medicine in the School of Medicine at Duke University. Then the group will split into small interactive sessions including:

  • Tea ceremony: gain a deeper understanding of wellness through tea culture,
  • Painting session: promote wellness through the mindful activity of painting while listening to music,
  • Guided meditation: learn a new skill or continue your practice as you relax more and worry less, and
  • Yoga: led by Dana Wynne Lindquist '85 of Woodland Yoga.

At the end of the day, join us for an optional lunch in the original historic West Union on Duke's west campus, renamed the Brodhead Center, the hub of campus dining with 13 individual restaurants (not included in the registration fee).
