Health Advocate Subcommittees

Physical Health

We help to educate and guide students on proper exercise, sleep, and STI awareness, and general disease and illness prevention. Entering college, we become much more independent and have to start making our own decisions about our health. It is important for students to be aware of what is appropriate for our bodies. College is the time to start getting into good habits for our futures.

We provide:

  • Breast Cancer Awareness
  • Love Your Body Week - "Bennies are Beautiful"
  • Women's Month in March
  • Get Yourself Tested
  • Exercise Activities
  • Motivational and supportive environment to begin exercising
  • Information on safe and effective ways to exercise

  • Ways to meet other women at your fitness level to work out with
