President Bottomly's Healthy You Announcement Letter

In 1995, Wellesley College, along with 15 Boston-area colleges and universities, formed The Boston Consortium (TBC). One of The Consortium’s initiatives is to keep the health care of its member institutions affordable and accessible by helping employees and their families get and stay healthy. This Health Management Initiative is called Healthy You.
