Health Promotion and Outreach

Health Promotion and Outreach provides health and wellness education to support students' academic success by creating opportunities for students to become more aware and better educated 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.
