WISE 2020 Initiatives

The WISE committee, in collaboration with MSA, is seeking to improve access to exercise facilities for medical students. With the NAT closing for construction, this is a particularly pertinent issue. Survey data, collected by WISE from the UWSMPH student body, consistently shows students calling for closer, more convenient ways to exercise.

WISE initiatives are typically informed by the yearly student wellness survey. Additional ideas and suggestions are always welcome and can be sent to WISE leadership (giacobassi@wisc.edu).
