Director's Welcome

Good health is of the utmost importance to maintaining quality of life. A healthy lifestyle includes the following three components:

  • A Healthy Body - diet, exercise, rest, disease prevention
  • A Healthy Mind - fun, exercise, relaxation, stress management 
  • A Healthy Environment - social support, community involvement, personal safety

A lack of attention in any one area will affect your overall good health. Harvard University Health Services (HUHS) has many talented clinicians and health care professionals available to provide confidential services, and support you in all aspects of your health at Harvard.

We hope you will come to see us as a wellness center, as well as a place to come when you are ill. Your primary care team is ready to help you with any clinical problems you may have.

You may also want to stop by our Center for Wellness for a massage or one-on-one orientation to the variety of health education and outreach programs and materials available to you on campus. Or check out our support groups and counseling services to help you maintain a sensible balance of work and relaxation.

Whether you already use a variety of strategies to achieve optimal health or are about to try something new, we are here to help.

Wishing you the best of health,
