Over two dozen students and faculty members joined me at the inaugural Dean’s Wellness Walk around the Harrisburg Campus on Thursday, October 9, 2009 at 3:30 p.m. The walk, which lasted about thirty minutes, started at the Administration building and looped around the law school building, tennis courts, and bookstore.

The purpose of the walk was to promote general wellness and the University’s new smoke-free policy that starts in July 2010. Each of the participants received a blue t-shirt that said “Widener Law, Proud to be Tobacco Free, July 2010.”

During the walk, students and faculty socialized and discussed the new tobacco-free policy that I announced earlier in the semester. I’m looking forward  to making the walk an annual event.
