Anoka-Hennepin Community Education has hosted the annual Community Wellness Day over the past ten years as a free, educational opportunity for families and individuals in the school district and surrounding communities to learn more about wellness and to practicing healthy lifestyles.
Bringing the community together for health and wellness Community Wellness Day is an excellent example of community education partnerships in action! Sponsors and community education staff work to bring community resources together, by offering educational activities, demonstrations, keynote presentations, health screenings and community resources. Workshops focus on cooking, exercise, nutrition, fitness, stress management, and family activities – to name a few.
With the belief that wellness is more than the absence of illness, Community Wellness Day strives to provide an environment that supports the nutritional and physical well‐being of those who live, work, and play in the community.
