Health Promotions Programming

What We Do

Health Promotion Programming strives to create a campus culture in which members make informed and responsible decisions about personal and community health. It is our commitment to provide resources that will help students, staff, and the community develop life skills to assist them in making responsible choices about health-related behaviors.

This program coordinates initiatives, facilitates collaboration, and provides training, resources, and educational opportunities in the following areas:

  • access to health care services
  • alcohol and other drugs
  • nutrition and body image
  • mental health
  • relationship issues
  • sexual health
  • stress management

Ways to get involved

Health Promotion Programming is always looking for Peer Educators who want to be proactive in helping the college become a healthier campus! Studies show that Peer Educators make a large impact on the health behaviors of their peers. All Peer Educators will go through a nationally-certified training program (that can be used on other college campuses), as well as enhance their skills in leadership, team-building and program planning. Interested students can contact Carol Fawcett PTA, BS, MEd at cfawcett@prairiestate.edu .
