Meet the Advisory Board of the UW Master’s in Health and Wellness Management

UW Extended Campus January 20, 2022

The online Master of Science in Health and Wellness Management is supported by an advisory board consisting of 12 to 15 representatives from the health and wellness management field who serve as advisors, ambassadors, and referral agents to the program.

The advisory board meets bi-annually and members provide constructive feedback regarding changes in the industry and how those changes affect program graduates. The meetings ensure the program and curriculum stays relevant to trends in health and wellness management. Board members are also asked to host students working on capstone projects, and create smooth school-to-work transitions, so that as students graduate from the program they will move to gainful employment.

The advisory board provides recognized leaders in the field with a unique opportunity to further shape the program and health and wellness management profession. Learn more about the Advisory Board Member Responsibilities and Advisory Board Guidelines.
