A few links that may be of help:
Harvard has a TON of health-related clubs on campus (you can filter out various clubs by category on the website for student organization life at http://osl.fas.harvard.edu/icb/icb.do?keyword=k65178&pageid=icb.page305611). Feel free to contact us if you’re having trouble distinguishing between them (trust us, we had the same problem our freshman year!)

The Harvard Center for Wellness is a great place to hear about wellness resources while you’re here. http://cw.uhs.harvard.edu/
