RSVP to Graduate Health Focus Group

The GSA and UHS Health Promotion Resource Center are inviting graduate students to attend an upcoming discussion focused on Graduate Student Health on Wednesday, March 26, 2014. We are seeking your feedback on ways to improve all aspects of graduate student health on campus. The event will be held at 5:30 PM in CLA 0.120. Light refreshments will be provided.

The Health Promotion Resource Center implements evidence-based programs that optimize student health to help prevent diseases and health-related behavior from interfering with a graduate students’ effort to realize their academic and professional goals.  To inform the planning and application of our initiatives, we actively gather input from stakeholders throughout the University and collect and analyze data concerning student health.   In order to effectively address priority health issues for graduate and professional students, we are requesting your attendance at an upcoming focus group to discuss some of the following issues:

  • Health-related assets and campus resources graduate students use and know about
  • Gaps in Health policies, programs and services for graduate students
  • Priority areas in Mental Health, Sexual Health, Sleep, Nutrition, Physical Activity, Body Image,  Substance and Alcohol Abuse and Health Care Access
  • Improving communication with graduate students through effective messaging to encourage adoption of healthy behaviors and lifestyles
  • Suggested ways to partner to improve graduate student health

Please RSVP here.

On behalf of the Graduate Student Assembly and University Health Services, we thank you for your time and consideration.  We look forward to your participation and working with you all to create a healthier campus for all students.Sincerely,

Graduate Student Assembly
