Health and Wellness

The Health & Wellness program brings a new era in community health and wellness. In 2014, City of Fort Collins Recreation Department, Columbine Health Systems (Columbine), and University of Colorado Health (UCHealth) combines their resources and talents. From this partnership stemmed the Health & Wellness program, a unique and comprehensive public health and wellness program housed at the Fort Collins Senior Center and offered at City of Fort Collins Recreation facilities.
