In addition to providing care, Health Services distributes information to encourage healthy living based on prevention. It does this through a variety of channels throughout the school year, by hosting on-campus health-awareness events and sponsoring campaigns, both of which provide a venue for guest experts to share their knowledge of current and sometimes sensitive issues.
The office also makes free pamphlets and other literature available around campus. Periodically, the Health Services office publishes information sheets and articles about topics relevant to university students. You can find those documents, organized by category, here:
Alcohol and substance use
- Alcohol Use and Abuse
- Quitting Smoking
- DrugWatch.com , www.rxdangers.com, and www.DrugNews.net provides information about prescriptions and over-the-counter medications and their associated side effects.
