Penn’s Year of Health

Each year, Penn's Provost office sponsors a series of events around a theme chosen by faculty, staff and students. The 2014-2015 academic year is Penn's opportunity to explore health, wellness and welfare across many areas of our lives. The Year of Health was launched in August with the Penn Reading Project, and continues with interdisciplinary conferences, symposia, exhibits, performances and more, all produced by Penn’s schools, departments, resource centers and partners. All scheduled events are open to Pre-Health students, and some are available to the general public as well. Visit the Events Calendar to learn more.
