What is a Healthy Habits Ambassador?
Ambassdors are department representatives that communicate and promote Healthy Habits programs and activities. Ambassadors are passionate about health and wellbeing. In short, Ambassadors encourage colleagues and co-workers to treat their bodies as God's creation for lifelong Christian service.
Healthy Habits is a program designed to promote and integrate wellness into the culture of Calvin staff and faculty. Through the Ambassador Program, we are able to put a “face” to Healthy Habits. Additionally, behavior modification is facilitated successfully when groups of individuals share a common goal. Group participants share their experience and strengthen each other. The Ambassador Program works toward establishing a culture of health and wellness at Calvin, beginning at the department level.
