There are a number of ways students can get involved with the UHS Health Promotion Office. We are always looking for student input in our activities.
Opportunities include joining the UR Student Health Advisory Committee (URSHAC), enrolling in the Peer Health Advocacy class, completing an independent study course with one of our staff members, helping with a specific project, and working as a student staff member in the office.
URSHAC, which is chaired by students, offers students the opportunity to have an impact on the health care services offered for students. The committee meets with the Director of the University Health Service every two to three weeks to share ideas, offer suggestions, and discuss topics of concern to students. Contact Tristan Ford, URSHAC Chair, or Linda Dudman, staff advisor, for more information. Find us on Facebook!!
Healthy Monday is a campus-wide movement designed to highlight activities and resources available in the campus community that can help students prioritize health on a weekly basis. Each week is based on a theme – Motivated Monday on the first Monday, Move-it Monday on the second Monday, Meatless Monday on the third Monday, and Mellow Out Monday on the fourth Monday. If you are interested in partnering with Healthy Monday, contact Sara Gleisle in the UHS Health Promotion Office. Like us on Facebook!!
Are you interested in learning more about health issues such as sexuality, prevention of STDs/HIV, stress, and alcohol use? Do you want to be able to share health information with your friends without sounding preachy or hypocritical? Then the Peer Health Advocacy course is for you! See the description for PH 216. The course is offered during the fall semester. For information, contact Melissa Kelley.
The UHS Health Promotion Office staff members welcome and encourage the involvement of individual students and groups in the planning of projects, programs, and campus-wide health events.
