Health Advocate Subcommittees
We help to educate and guide students on proper exercise, sleep, STI awareness, and general disease and illness prevention. Entering college, we become much more independent and 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 begin good habits that will benefit us in the future.
We strive to bring light to different mental wellbeing topics such as mental illnesses, stress, alcohol/drugs, sleep, body image/self-esteem, and other areas associated with mental health. We provide passive programming such as flyers, emails, and posters and active programming such as presentations, booths and informational sessions. Our goal is to eliminate stigma in discussing mental health issues, and provide tools that allow us to take care of our own mental health.
We help to guide and educate students on how to achieve a healthy, balanced diet. Portion sizes, nutritional content of foods, and mindful eating are just a few topics covered by the nutritional health committee. Since college is a time of transitions and decision making, we are here to provide information and resources related to nutrition that will make your diet decisions much easier.
