Health Promotion and Prevention
Through education and prevention initiatives, we provide resources related to alcohol and drugs, nutrition, physical activity, sleep, stress management among others. We utilize a public health approach focusing on the impact of the environment on healthy communities and work collaboratively with student groups.
