A new health and wellness program designed for veterans and UD student-athletes is the focus of an open house at the University of Delaware’s Science, Technology and Advanced Research (STAR) Health Sciences Complex.
Veterans and College Athletes Together (VCAT) is a free 12-week program for post 9/11 veterans which includes two 75-minute workout sessions and two wellness classes per week. UD student-athletes are paired with veterans as workout partners. Veterans become a part of the extended UD community, an important aspect to reintegration into civilian life. Any post 9-11 veteran active duty, guardsman, or reservist, who has been challenged to get or stay healthy is welcome. The open house will be held August 1 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Audion at the Tower at STAR. The first session of the program runs from Sept. 3 to Nov. 21.
