  • About Us

    The Berkeley Wellness Alerts e-mail program provides up-to-date, practical health and wellness advice from the UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, BERKELEY WELLNESS LETTER and the School of Public Health in an easy-to-read format, free of charge.

    The editors of the WELLNESS LETTER and faculty of the UC Berkeley School of Public Health have set up this interactive program to help reach a broad network of readers via free wellness alerts and special reports in six different topic areas: healthy eating, dietary supplements, healthy heart, men’s health, women’s health, and lifelong wellness.

    The Berkeley Wellness Alerts program relies on the expertise of the School of Public Health and other researchers at UC Berkeley, as well as other top scientists from around the world. It translates this leading-edge research into practical advice for daily living—at home, at work, while exercising, and in the market, drugstore, and health-food store.

    Our highly acclaimed monthly print newsletter, the WELLNESS LETTER, has been the leading wellness resource since 1984. Rather than simply reporting quick health stories of the day, the Berkeley Wellness Alerts, like the WELLNESS LETTER, put the news in perspective and evaluate it. We constantly review the latest research, and clarify the often conflicting and superficial health information presented by the popular media. We don't promote faddish diets or try to sell supplements. Nor do we simply repeat conventional medical advice from mainstream health organizations or pharmaceutical companies.
