HEALTH EDUCATION PROGRAMS
The Health Educators and/or student educators, both a part of Health Services, also present programs on sexual assault and partner violence. This includes classes in which men teach other men about these critical issues. The Women's Interest Group (WIGS), a female student group under the Health Education area, also presents to other women about partner violence and stalking issues. The Health Educators and/or student educators present programs free of charge upon request on campus, and will present for other campuses, local middle and high schools. Other topics, beyond sexual assault and partner violence, include: Alcohol Awareness, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, Women and Alcohol, Alcohol and the Athlete, Alcohol and Marketing, Smoking Cessation and other illegal drugs/Prescription medications abuse. The Health Educators also have programs on sexual awareness including one about sexually transmitted diseases.
