What is Wellness?
Beyond just “not being sick”, wellness is a state of optimal health to which each of us can aim regardless of age, physical limitation, and income level. Wellness is a life balance that can be achieved by making time each day to incorporate the “6 dimensions of wellness”, that serve as a compass in our pursuit of wellness.

~ Anna Love (Founder & CEO, Love to Live Well), 2010 ~

Each of us chooses daily which of these actions or behaviors to include in our day.

Credit to: Dr. Bill Hettler, co-founder of the National Wellness Institute for developing the Wellness model.
Examples for each dimension:
•Physical - healthy eating, active lifestyle
•Emotional - optimism, trust, self-esteem
•Intellectual - creativity, lifelong learning
•Spiritual - sense of meaning/purpose
•Social - support system of friends and family
•Occupational / Financial - enjoyable work, reasonable financial security

Featured Speakers
Deborah Clegg, PhD, RD, UT Southwestern Medical Center, Touchstone Diabetes Center

Dr. Clegg is an Associate Professor in the Department of Touchstone Diabetes focusing on understanding the impact of sex hormones on energy homeostasis, metabolic function, and adipose tissue distribution. Specifically, her lab researches whether androgens and estrogens are involved in the modulation of the major bioenergetic and/or biosynthetic pathways that normally support energy homeostasis and adipose tissue function. In April, 2008 Dr. Clegg joined the faculty at University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center where she has established her independent laboratory and she has recently completed and published numerous studies, three are highlighted here: 1) the impact of fatty acids in CNS insulin/leptin signaling using in vivo and in vitro techniques, 2) a microarray analysis demonstrating sex differences in gene expression in adipose tissue between male, female, and ovariectomized female mice, 3) CNS characterization of the role of estrogen receptor alpha in mediating energy homeostasis. Her ultimate goal is to direct research on the role of sex hormones in the control of metabolic function and adipose tissue distribution, which will ultimately enhance our understanding of the role of estrogen in protecting against diseases associated with obesity and the metabolic syndrome.
