Rec Resolutions

At the start of each spring semester, Campus Rec hosts a Resolutions Program to help hold you accountable to your New Year’s health and wellness goals.

About Rec Resolutions

Webinar: Posture

The human body comprises multiple bones, joints, ligaments, and muscles. All of these components must work cohesively together to allow you to perform basic daily functions. This includes: walking, cooking, going up stairs, using the bathroom, and more. But what happens when one of these components is not working properly? Do you experience neck pain, headaches, back pain, or knee pain? Sometimes, these issues can be attributed to postural imbalances! Tune in to our webinar to learn more from our special guest Katelyn!
