Norfolk State University’s attempt to raise awareness for health and wellness succeeded expectations. Recording Artist DeAna Fai led the evening as emcee at an EmpowerU Student Wellness Summit hosted by the HBCU. Charles Clark, a USA Track and Field Olympian, joined the songstress as the mental health motivational speaker.
Following Charles Clark’s talk of overcoming adversity, DeAna Fai led a panel discussion that included some of the Student Government Association representatives, and a licensed professional counselor. The questions pertained to life on campus and juggling other concerns or stressors that may surface as a student. The LPC gave insight to resources available to the students and responded to any concerns or questions the students may have had.
