Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of, and making choices toward a more holistic existence. Wellness is not something that happens to people, wellness is a state of being. Here at Grand Rapids Community College we have a number of ways for you to “plug-in” to wellness. You don’t need to be a marathon runner or meditate for hours each day, but what’s your next step to becoming a healthier person for yourself, your family, you students and our community?
One way to “plug-in” to wellness, is by joining us for the viewing of four “Lunch & Learn” movies. These events are created to inform and educate in a relaxed format. A healthy lunch may be purchased for $5.00 at this event. When signing up please indicate if you would like a lunch to eat while viewing the movie.
Please register online at grcc.edu/currentlearning or call Staff Development at extension 4285.

Lunch & Learn – Forks Over Knives
Tue Feb. 12, 2013 | 11:30 AM – 1:30 PM | Location TBD
Educational Movie – Participants will learn about eating a plant strong diet rich in healthy fruits, vegetables and beans. This movie examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods. The major storyline in the film traces the personal journeys of a pair of pioneering yet under-appreciated researchers, Dr. T. Colin Campbell and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn.
Lunch & Learn – Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead
Thurs April 4, 2013 | 11:30 AM – 1:30 PM | Location TBD
Educational Movie – 100 pounds overweight, loaded up on steroids and suffering from a debilitating autoimmune disease, Joe Cross is at the end of his rope and the end of his hope. In the mirror he saw a 310lb man whose gut was bigger than a beach ball and a path laid out before him that wouldn’t end well, with one foot already in the grave, the other wasn’t far behind. FAT, SICK & NEARLY DEAD is an inspiring film that chronicles Joe’s personal mission to regain his health.
These sound very interesting and pretty relevant to our daily lives.
Thank you for offering such in depth, current issues which certainly affect me! I will be there!
