Health Education and Promotion

The goal of the Health Education and Promotion office is to involve the York University community in their own health care. An individual can help make major contributions to their own well being by becoming informed about general health, health risks and the importance of daily habits and lifestyle.

The Nurse Educator will provide confidential counselling, information/referrals, on contraception, HIV/AIDS, STDs, alcohol/substance abuse, smoking cessation, nutrition and exercise, eating disorders and stress management.

The office has a large selection of articles, books, pamphlets and videos on various health issues. Information can be located on our Web site located at www.yorku.ca/admin/healthed/index.htm. This site makes a wide variety of resources accessible to students and staff. Articles, books and videos may be borrowed on a sign-out basis.

The Peer Education program offers workshops by trained student volunteers on HIV/AIDS, STDs, alcohol awareness, date rape, birth control and stress management.

Watch for our Health Promotion events throughout the year: September - Orientation Play, Condom Olympics. October - alcohol awareness Week, breast cancer awareness month. November - Aids Awareness Week. December - stress management, AIDS Red Ribbon Campaign, nutrition/body image, alcohol/substance abuse. January - smoking cessation. February - Health Fair, "Safe" Valentines. March/April - sunsense, stress management and cancer awareness month.

The Office is located in 102 Central Square. For more information, call 416-736-5196. Web site: www.yorku.ca/healthed
