Wellness Center

A career in health & wellness ?

Question:

Hello, I am exploring a career in health & wellness.

I have a B.A. in Business Communications. My wife survived mesothelioma, a rare lung cancer and was hospitalized for a year. I am taking a yoga / meditation class. I am also taking a "moving on from cancer" seminar at a center for patients and loved ones. I volunteer for the Chief of Thoracic Surgery at a major hospital. My wife and I give hope and inspiration to patients and family members.

People have told me that I want to achieve great things in life. I feel that I have unique experience and would be interested in learning about careers in this field.
