Jack D. Osman, Ph.D.

In his career as an educator, Jack has taught Health Education at the University of Maryland, Ballou High School (Washington, D.C.), The Ohio State University and (for the past 32 years) Towson University.

Dr. Jack (as his students call him) loves a life of diversity which includes: sweetpotato farming, vegetable gardening, jogging, swimming, power walking and tinkering in the workshop. During the summers, he teaches swimming and lifeguarding at The Wellness Farm Pool.

He has cooked up some "interesting" recipes -- (often using sweetpotatoes).  Jack's real passion is teaching and implementing technology into the teaching/learning process. 

An elder in a local church,  he endeavors to integrate the spiritual into his everyday life. "We are spiritual beings ... having a temporary earth-bound experience." 

Jack and his family reside at the Wellness Farm, a 63-acre facility just across the Mason Dixon Line in Pennsylvania.

Jack has published the following books:

Thin From Within: Values Clarification in Weight Control, NY: Hart Publishing, 1976.

American Medical Joggers Association Runner’s Diary, N. Hollywood, CA: AMJA, 1979.

Thin From Within: Vegetarian Edition, Washington, D.C.: Review and Herald Pub., 1981.

Fat Fat Fat: A Threefold Look at Fat Control, Towson, MD: Fat Control, Inc., 1984.

The Wellness Farm offers events and seminars throughout the year on the topics of health and wellness. In addition, seasonal memberships are available to the Wellness Farm pool.
