wellness programs

Our wellness programs focus on health education, providing opportunities for positive behavior change, and a holistic approach to personal well-being. In collaboration with a variety of campus partners, we are committed to promoting a healthy Purdue community.

Light Therapy

Light therapy is performed to treat Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) by providing exposure to artificial light. Individuals with Seasonal Affective Disorder suffer symptoms similar to Depression during the fall and winter, when the days are shorter and the skies are often cloudy. Light therapy involves use of a light box that emits bright light simulating sunlight.
