Daybreak Star Radio Station recently had a great opportunity to interview President Guillory from Northwest Indian College. During this interview President Guillory discussed the need for culturally based education and the brand-new Health and Wellness Center for students at NWIC and how it will benefit the surrounding Indigenous communities.
The future Health and Wellness Center at Northwest Indian College will be an important resource for students at the college, The M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust has granted $1,333,500 to Northwest IndianCollege for a new health and wellness center.
This center will provide NWIC community members and staff with access to healthcare services and support for their physical and mental wellbeing. Having a Health and Wellness Center on campus can also benefit the surrounding Indigenous communities by providing them with access to healthcare services that may not be readily available to them. This can help improve the overall health and wellbeing of the Indigenous population in the area, and may also help to address health disparities that affect nearby Indigenous communities.
In addition to providing direct healthcare services, the Health and Wellness Center at Northwest Indian College can also play a role in promoting health and wellness among students and the surrounding Indigenous communities. For example, the center could offer wellness programs, such as exercise classes, nutrition education, and stress management workshops, which can help students and community members improve their overall health and wellbeing.
Overall, the Health and Wellness Center at Northwest Indian College is an important resource for students and the surrounding Indigenous communities, and can play a vital role in improving their health and wellbeing.
