Eastern New Mexico University has developed a program that supports individual efforts to enhance well-being and quality of life. The program is offered for faculty, staff, and community members.
The Lifelong Wellness Program (LLW) is designed to help start a physical activity program, increase the effectiveness of a current program, or develop skills to expand physical activity into new areas.
