Requesting a Program

Outreach to the Community

Classroom presentations on a wide variety of health topics, including sexual health, alcohol and other drugs, nutrition, body image, eating disorders, tobacco cessation, sexual assault and more. If you are an instructor at the university and have a conference to go to or have a conflict with one of your scheduled classes, let us come to your class.

Educational materials on health issues are available through the Health Promotion Department. Written information is an essential tool to support people in taking control of their health and being informed consumers.


Patient Education

Health educators work in partnership with the clinician staff to help students learn about self-care and healthy lifestyles. By making an appointment with one of the health educators, you can talk to them about STIs, contraception, alcohol and other drugs, acquaintance rape issues, eating disorders, body image, nutrition, cholesterol and vegetarian eating.


Campus-wide Health Promotion Activities

Campus-wide special events are planned through out the year on a variety of relevant health issues. Look for announcements about these exciting programs.
