As a part of our comprehensive programming, the Health Education & Promotion (HEP) Office offers wellness workshops on various health topics by request. Workshops can be requested through the “request a workshop” button (below) by students and/or staff/faculty/administrators who would like us to present to a group of students. We ask that requests be made at least 2 weeks prior to the desired workshop date and that you have at least 10 participants in attendance. All workshops are one hour in length, unless otherwise noted. Workshop options include the following:
Building a Healthier You
This workshop focuses on healthy eating and physical activity to support your general wellness. By the end of the workshop students will be familiar with messages from the Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2015-2020 and the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans (2008) and be able to create a plan for wellness using SMART goals.
Managing Everyday Stressors
This workshop focuses on how to identify causes of stress, common stressors for college students, understanding the impact that stress can have on a person, and ways to effectively cope with and manage those stressors.
