Wellness Center Begins Fitness Initiative
Members share experiences, benefits
In an earnest effort to help Alabama A&M University students, faculty, staff and alumni to achieve their fitness goals, the AAMU Student Health and Wellness Center (SHWC) has established a “Member of the Month” initiative. As part of the initiative, SHWC-selected members will be able to share their stories about challenges, successes and lessons learned on their journey toward fitness.
The inaugural “Member of the Month” for July 2019 was Dr. Pamela Thompson, interim executive director for AAMU’s Freshman Academy. The native of Whistler, Ala., and proud mother of three daughters is an AAMU alumnus who realized the need “to make a shift in order to become a healthier me.”
Thompson’s encouragement: “Take one day at a time. If you fall off the wagon, get back on track, because that’s the benefit of a new day.”
Persons interested in membership should contact Jazmine Robinson, marketing coordinator, at (256) 372-7002.
