Wellness Program under Expansion
Perry Wellness Center is excited to learn that the state of Georgia is adopting new program guidelines for peer support programs. These guidelines will encourage additional peer time in physical training and mind/body wellness activities.
Stuart Perry notes, “We are happy that we are ‘ahead of the curve’ in realizing the importance of physical activity in our total wellness program.” While we’ve always taken a leadership role in wellness activities among Georgia’s peer centers, new guidelines mean new opportunities. PWC will continue to develop its physical education and exercise program, as it expands its range of sports and training activities and venues.
Volleyball has recently been added to our schedule of competitive sports, and tennis will soon follow at off-site city courts. We are also developing a program of competitive weight lifting at the center.
Our extensive gym area provides an ideal location for groups of peers to encourage others as they work out to spirited music in the exercise room. In this photo, Mary Green works hard on a treadmill machine in the gym.
