Our Purpose: The purpose of Health Promotion & Outreach is to foster student learning, academic success and leadership through health and wellness education.
Health Promotion and Outreach aims to create opportunities for students to become more aware and better educated about their health and wellness in order to make more informed choices. We utilize educational programs to advocate for health and wellness on various topics and behaviors that can prevent disease, injuries and other health problems. We are firm believers that the healthier our students are, the better their educational experiences will be and the more likely they will graduate and achieve their goals.
