The Student Wellness Committee was established to promote healthy lifestyle choices among medical students, while raising awareness about the range of health and wellness services available at UB.

Sponsored by the Wendel Endowment, the Student Wellness Committee hosts a variety of events throughout the year to promote non-academic activities that help students maintain a healthy mental, physical, and emotional lifestyle. Events include:

  1. Wellness Warriors–a team of frist and second year medical students help to ease the pain of long study days by handing out study break packages to students in the library.
  2. Stress Busters–fun and exciting study breaks! Previous events include adult coloring, therapy dogs, massage breaks, healthy eating workshops, and make your own s’mores.
  3. VO2max–our fitness events! Bikeorbar cycling and rowing, group yoga, sponsored charity walks, a “slow roll” bike event, and much more!

This group is open to all medical students, and no long-term commitment is required! Check out and join the Facebook page for info and updates throughout the year!
