New Health Promotion And Wellness Office Offers Students Peer Education In IM Building

The Health Promotion and Wellness office at Penn State is expanding and now has two locations: the original in the Student Health Center and a new office in the recently renovated IM building.

Since the beginning of September, the IM office has been home to one-on-one peer education services rather than the traditional professional staff. This includes services for financial wellness, healthy relationships and sexual health, physical activity, sleep, nutrition, and stress. Students can come to three free one-hour sessions for each and sign up multiple times as well.

There are multiple spaces to relax or do work, including a relaxation room (previously known as the de-stress zone) where students can do meditation practices and explore relaxing methods like lowering one’s pulse. Time management techniques are available to learn here as well.

The office is the new home to Healthworks and Healthy Penn State Ambassadors and collaborates with the Office of Student Affairs as well as academic departments like Kinesiology. These departments work together to promote any healthy activity or affair on campus.
