There is an ongoing focus on health and wellness at the LEC. The kitchen aims to serve nutritionally balanced meals, several classes available each month focus on wellness and nutrition, and the fitness center encourages and enables individuals to increase strength and/or endurance.
Semi-annual Health Fairs are generally held in April and September with the support of multiple area Health and Education Partners.
