Health & Wellness Coalition – Applications Due Sept. 27

Student Affairs’ Health Promotion and Wellness (HPW) is searching for students to participate in a new Health & Wellness Coalition for the 2019-2020 academic year. The deadline to apply is September 27th. Penn State students from all majors and minors are encouraged to apply.

The purpose of the Health & Wellness Coalition is to examine student health data and identify goals and strategies to improve the health and wellness of Penn State students.

As a member of the Health & Wellness Coalition, you will participate in several planning sessions/retreats, assist in campaigns across campus, assess data, and identify strategies. Students will work alongside health promotion staff. Being a member of the coalition is a great opportunity to contribute to creating a healthy campus culture, especially in helping reduce the impact of dangerous drinking.

If selected to be on this coalition, you must be able to commit to at least the fall and spring semester. Requirements include attending 3-4 monthly planning sessions in fall semester and 1-hour monthly meetings in spring semester.  Dates and times of all planning sessions and meetings will be determined based on student availability.

To apply, fill out the Health & Wellness Coalition form at  https://tinyurl.com/y3kotx5k or on the Student Affairs website by September 27th. If you have questions, stop by 001P Intramural (IM) Building, call 814-863-0461, or e-mail Linda LaSalle at lal5@psu.edu.

The Health and Wellness Coalition is funded by a grant from the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board.
