|Students can earn credit while becoming health advocates|
Please help spread the word to students about Health Advocacy I, which will be offered in the fall of 2007. Any student with a personal or professional interest in health issues is encouraged to register. The class is offered at a sophomore level; exceptions will be made for freshman students with advisor approval. Health Advocacy I is a two-credit class providing educational training in communication and listening skills, healthy lifestyle choices, current science-based health information, prevention strategies and peer mentoring. The class is unique in that it promotes peer advocacy for students within the university setting. The class is listed as Nursing 400 Special Topics, Call #7449. It will be held Wednesday from 3 to 4:50 p.m. Health Advocacy I was developed through a partnership between the College of Nursing and Student Health Services. Students need not be nursing or health science majors. Health Advocacy II will be offered in the spring of 2008.
