“Wellness. There’s a word you don’t hear every day!” – Dan Rather, 1979
“Wellness” has not only become a national fascination, but for me it is a personal one as well. My latest research and writing focuses on how Americans have since the 1950s tied the pursuit of self-fulfillment to food and fitness projects, I am a co-founder of experiential wellness education program HealthClass2.0, and I teach the mind-body practice intenSati at Equinox Fitness and privately in New York City. I also write a biweekly column on wellness history at the national online magazine, Well+Good.
