The B Well program was created in 2007 and strives to provide encouragement, motivation and education for the Bates community. Wellness is the process of being aware of and actively working towards better physical, mental, and emotional health. Bates values healthy community members! B Well offers free fitness classes such as yoga, fitness boot camps, aquatic classes and more. Additionally, the program provides free health coaching and tobacco cessation opportunities. To learn more about these and much more, contact Mike Milliken, Wellness program manager, at 207-753-6936 or mmillike@bates.edu
