Wellness Programming

In 2016, Mecklenburg County released the State of the County report, which addressed many issues in community health, including chronic conditions. In Mecklenburg County 61% of adults were overweight or obese. 17% of adults did not participate in any physical activity, 29% had high blood pressure, and 29% had high cholesterol. Chronic diseases and lack of physical activity lead to a reduced quality of life. The JCSU HealthPlex aims to positively impact its students, faculty, staff, and community in reducing the negative effects of chronic diseases. 

HealthPlex wellness programming and access to its fitness equipment is free of charge to the JCSU campus and to community members of the Northwest Corridor and surrounding areas.
