Community Initiatives

Cornell Health provides leadership for and collaborates with students groups and campus partners on the following popular initiatives. Let's Meditate and Body Positive Cornell are free and open to all, and are designed to help support the health and well-being of our campus community.

Body Positive Cornell 

Body Positive Cornell (BPC) is supported by Cornell Health's Cornell Health Eating Program (CHEP) and Skorton Center for Health Initiatives staff, and is conducted in collaboration with Cornell Athletics, Cornell Fitness Centers, Cornell Minds Matter, Panhellenic, and Cornell Wellness.

Peer-led BPC groups are offered in the fall and spring semesters, and meet once a week for 8 weeks. Participants support each other in cultivating body appreciation, increasing self-compassion, and improving overall well-being. 

Groups are open to undergraduate students, graduate/professional students, and staff members of all genders, sexes, identities, and bodies.
