Named for one of Loma Linda University’s renowned educators, the Wil Alexander Wholeness Series begins its second year of campus-wide lectures on October 6, 2004.

The series evolved last year when Greg Steiner, director, student activities, Loma Linda University, and Ardis Wazdatskey, MS, portfolio director, School of Allied Health Professions, joined forces to encourage a sense of community, as well as personal and professional wholeness on campus.  The lecture series grew from workshops Ms. Wazdatskey provides for Portfolio students.

Portfolio I and II, offered through the School of Allied Health Professions, aim to prepare students for life after graduation. The classes help students  become health professionals who are personally and professionally balanced. Workshops comprise a portion of the curriculum, and this year’s topics include professional behavior, fitness, managing your emotions, raising happy children, and creating healthy meals, among others.

“I saw these workshops as an opportunity for a campus-wide educational series,” says Mr. Steiner.“The Wil Alexander Wholeness Series brings the lectures to faculty, staff, and students throughout the University.” 

Lectures are scheduled in the Drayson Center Collins Room from 5:15 to 6:00 p.m., with a light meal prior to the presentations at 5:00 p.m. The meal is  provided by the office of student activities.
