Mission and Identity Offers Discount on Wellness Services for SLU Undergraduates
Saint Louis University’s Office of Mission and Identity will offer undergraduate students a discount on preventative well-being services at the Anthropedia Center for Well-Being.
By showing SLU student identification at registration, students will receive 50% off the posted price of well-being treatments and seminars. The discount is being subsidized through a grant to Mission and Identity.
Chris Collins, S.J. said he was drawn to Anthropedia’s holistic approach to caring for the whole person.
“As a Jesuit institution we believe in Cura Personalis or the care of the whole person,” Collins said. “This is one more way to help our students on their path to becoming their whole selves.”
Kevin Cloninger, Ph.D., the executive director of Anthropedia, said the idea for the Center was born while he and fellow founders Lauren Munsch Dal Farra, M.D. and Sita Kedia, M.D. were in their graduate programs.
“We were stressed,” he said. “And we knew that if we were feeling that way, with the resources we had available to us, that others must be feeling it as well.”
Cloninger said it was SLU’s dedication to the community led him to seek out ways to partner with the University.
The Center is divided into two sections – the Anthropedia Academy and the Wellness Agora. The Academy offers well-being coach training sessions, workshops and support services.
The Wellness Agora offers mind-body wellness services, including Iso floats, thermal relax and airwave massage. Additional information on all wellness services and fees is available at thewellnessagora.com.
The Center will also provide complimentary meditation with any service for Undergraduate SLU students.
The center is located on the edge of SLU’s campus at 3693 Forest Park Avenue, in the Library Annex building. It is open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday-Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sundays.
