PHSA involvement with the Center of Student Well Being and Hope House

This semester, The Public Health Student Association (PHSA) was involved in the #FreshCheck Virtual Scavenger Hunt put on by the Center of Student Well Being.  The hunt was centered around mental and physical health for college students. PHSA hosted the “Boost Booth”, a virtual booth discussing physical activity, participants heard from PHSA President, Taylor Moore and Secretary, Ashley Montgomery. PHSA was also represented during the Student Involvement Fair where Taylor Moore set up a socially-distanced table and provided information about PHSA and how to get involved.

PHSA also volunteered with a Hope House event this semester. The Hope House sets up every Thursday morning 9:30-11 to pack up and distribute food bags for individuals in the community who may be in need of a little extra help during this pandemic.  Students helped pack and sort food for food boxes that are distributed to students every week.

PHSA meets virtually every 4th Thursday of the month at 4pm where there is discussion about:

  • Current Public Health News in Our Community
  • Upcoming Volunteer Opportunities On and Off Campus
  • Public Health Guest Speakers
