Fresno Pacific University's Health Center, recognizes wellness as the best possible, God-given state of being. Wellness is more than lack of disease. It is balanced life wholeness. Wellness is achieved through nurturing the physical, spiritual, social and mental areas of our lives. Health Services supports all areas, but primarily addresses disease prevention and health promotion. The campus nurse, Jennifer Calvero, RN, is the primary care provider at FPU. FPU also offers an online wellness magazine, Student Health 101.  The permanent link to the magazine is located at the top of this page.
