Health Promotion is a team of students dedicated to spreading awareness about various health and wellness topics on campus. We are also a group of peers here to listen and support you, and offer you a holistic approach to well-being.
Your health and wellness are essential to your academic success, but sometimes it’s hard to keep them top of mind. You may need a gentle reminder to take care of yourself, have questions about yourself or your health, or need help facing challenges.
Reach out to us for any health and wellness concerns. Our space is safe and judgement-free.

Chat with us
Our live chat operates between 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. every day (even on weekends!).
