Physical Wellness Resources

Currently, over half of the U.S. population is diagnosed with a chronic disease, such as diabetes, heart disease, or lung disease, which can sometimes be preventable. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), simple healthy lifestyle choices like regular physical activity, eating a balanced diet, and sleeping at least 7 hours each night play a significant role in preventing such diseases. The CDC also stresses that regular preventive health screenings are directly linked to increased life expectancy and improved quality of life.

Pepperdine offers a wide variety of resources to help community members prioritize their physical wellbeing, including:
