Wellness Bibliography


In 1998, the following list was provided out of the generosity of Dr. Thomas Kaluznyski.Dr. Kaluzynski is a long-time professor and philosopher at The John and Janice Fisher Institute of Wellness and Gerontology (FIFWG) at Ball State University.The compilation and distribution of this list represents his dedication and commitment to the students within the wellness management masterís degree program, as well as the wellness field.I would be amiss if I did mention that other distinguished educators and readers of wellness materials including Dr. David Gobble, Director, FIFWG and Dr. Neil Schmattloch also contributed to the extensive list below.
