Events and Resources
Is your club/organization planning an event that you think the center could help with? Or are you confidentially seeking out information or advice on a specific health topic?
The Health and Wellness Education Center has a myriad of available resources such as visual aids, pamphlets, and interactive charts and games dealing with topics included but not limited to: stress, nutrition, drugs, alcohol, tobacco, STD prevention, birth control, and disease prevention/treatment. The center encourages students to make use of these resources for both student events and individual learning. We are always looking to collaborate with students through club events and help students on an individual basis. The center is also in contact with many medical experts of different fields and studies, and is happy to help serve students as a conduit in arranging meetings and/or discussions with these experts.
In addition to providing these resources in Carter Hall, the center is also focused on student outreach through interactive events and promotions. Some of the activities that the Health and Wellness Education Center regulary conduct include:
An AVI Dietitian visits the Student Center once a month to educate students and staff about element of a healthy diet.
The Healthy Monday newsletter is a bi-monthly email sent to faculty and students with a new tip to improve health. Topics range from Asthma to Stress to Tobacco use.
The center offers free monthly STD Testing for gonorrhea and chlamydia in Carter Hall. Free prizes, such as t-shirts, and random drawings for Wal-Mart gift cards are often provided.
Look for us in the Natali Student Center around holidays and seasonal events for healthy handouts and themed giveaways!

The center works in close collaboration with H.E.A.R.T.,which a club comprised of students always looking for new members! It is a great way to get involved with healthy events and be a member of a club that helps oneself and fellow students.
