About Health Promotions
Proactive & Preventative Education
The Office of Health Promotions foster students' academic and personal success by increasing discussion, examining issues and exploring the underlying contexts of key health behaviors. Our aim is to support and encourage the campus community and individual students to think critically about healthy decision-making. We prepare individuals and groups to take meaningful action to reduce negative and increase positive, health-related behavior. This objective is accomplished through individual consultation, prevention, and educational outreach to the campus.
Our office strives to encourage the inclusion of the campus community as a whole in college health efforts to build healthy environments that optimize learning. Utilizing the exchange of information, resources, and research-based practices we address the health and wellness of our campus and community. Some of the opportunities and services we offer include having the health educator available, by request, to address classes, residence halls, and student organizations on a variety of topics as well as provide individual consults for students.
I welcome the opportunity to speak to you and answer any questions that you may have or to plan a presentation for your organization.
