Bravo! Spelman College

The oldest college for black women in the United States has decided to replaces its intercollegiate sports program with a program that emphasizes wellness for the entire student body. Spelman College in Atlanta is focusing on encouraging beneficial health habits for all students enrolled. The AP quoted Dr. Bevery Daniel Tatum, President, "I have been to funerals of young alums who were not taking care of themselves, and I believe we can change that pattern not only for them, but for the broader community."
