November 10, 2016

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — University Health Services, a unit of Student Affairs, is seeking student ambassadors for its Healthy Penn State initiative.

Healthy Penn State is a holistic approach to promoting well-being that encourages the development and maintenance of a sound body, mind and spirit.

Ambassadors will work with staff in University Health Services to promote healthy behaviors that contribute to the academic and social success of students.   

“We’re excited to offer this brand new program. We look forward to educating ambassadors to spread the word about programs, services and resources,” said Erin Raupers, coordinator of educational services at University Health Services. “College is a time to explore healthy living options and our ambassadors will advocate for that.”

The student ambassador program offers a number of benefits to participants, including: being a valuable health resource for peers, promoting wellness services on campus, and making a difference in the health of other Penn State students.

Healthy Penn State ambassadors serve as role models for healthy behaviors and will work with University Health Services to share information about health issues.

To become an official Healthy Penn State ambassador, students will be required to attend an eigh-hour training, one-hour weekly meetings, and participate in weekly Healthy Penn State promotional events.

The deadline to apply is Dec. 5. For more information on how to apply, visit Healthy Penn State’s website
