The Wellness calendar highlights special events to promote awareness and responsibility in the areas of health, nutrition, food, safety, culture, society, disability rights and environmental issues. The calendar was created to inspire story or project ideas for the Journalist, Educator, Health Professional, Family and Consumer. As the calendar evolved it soon took on additional purposes. Today the calendar provides employment opportunities to individuals who have a difficult time finding jobs due to their special abilities.

United States Department of Agriculture
Chase’s Calendar of Events
Food and Drug Administration
Federal, State or City Governments
American Dietetic Association
American Medical Association
Private Organizations and Companies
The events have been verified. However, you should confirm the dates before making plans. Some events may vary from one state to another.
The calendar is updated as new events become available, as well as monthly reviews.

History of the Wellness Calendar.
Every day he would ask me, “What are we celebrating today?” Initially, I would make up events, such as a new tooth, the sun is out, etc... Eventually I would research reference books and later the Internet to see if there were special functions occurring on a specific day.
I’ve never charged for the calendars, but I thought this would be a wonderful way to raise money to help them with their ADL, self esteem, independence, etc... Apparently, I lack the marketing and sales experience because we didn’t sell any calendars.
with warm regards,
