As the core of the Barnes Center at The Arch Wellness Wheel, Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility (DEIA) intersect with all eight Dimensions of Wellness and the work of the health and wellness team. The DEIA core acknowledges that we cannot look at holistic well-being without acknowledging systems of oppression and health inequities that exist and interact with each Dimension of Wellness.
