To RA's and RD's
Health Education has a variety of health education programs that are tailored to meet the needs and interests of the students on your floor and in your Hall. See the listing of peer education programs and contact email@example.com to request a program.
We need 3-5 days to coordinate the program for you. Contact us with several dates and your Hall and floor location. We will create and send you a flyer to announce the program to your residents.
Bulletin Boards for Residence Staff
Health Education provides bulletin boards with helpful and interesting health information to print out and post in your Hall. This will help to educate residents about ways to enhance personal health, self-care, and prevention.
With these easy-to-use, ready-to-go bulletin boards. Just click on the area that interests you, print it out, and post it; or use it as a structure to build your own bulletin board. Try adding some pictures to your boards, and post things on the board that students can take away.
