Mount Saint Mary College’s Desmond Center for Community Engagement and Wellness recently made the holidays a little healthier for local residents.

The center’s Winter Wellness Day, a free event hosted on-campus, offered the community Zumba classes, acupressure, pet therapy, juice samples, free COVID-19 tests, and more. Thanks to Orange County Department of Health nurses on-site, participants could even receive a free COVID-19 booster shot.

The Desmond Center, overseen by Executive Director Genesis Ramos, provides wellness and educational services for underserved individuals and families. The center offers accessible and equitable educational, health, and wellness services for community members and families in the local area. All services are free of cost and open to the community.
