Healthy Husky

Healthy Husky


Health and Wellness at Bloomsburg University is made up of caring professionals who work together to provide programs and services that help students develop skills and access resources for healthier living. During this time of separation and isolation due to Covid-19, we know that our students may have felt disappointed and lonely, so over the past three weeks, we presented virtual events to keep us connected. The recordings of these events are now offered "on-demand" in the links below. Please feel free to access the recordings and be a Healthy Husky!

What is Healthy Husky?

Programs, services, and events that educate and motivate students to adopt healthy behaviors. Research demonstrates that healthy students are successful students. Healthy Husky efforts could include:

  • information, interaction and awareness about the benefits of stress management
  • healthy eating
  • getting the flu shot
  • mindful behaviors
  • smart choices about alcohol, and other drugs, including tobacco to name just a few

We partner with others across campus to promote the Healthy Husky choice, spreading the word and making sure students are aware of healthy alternatives, be that healthy food choices, active lifestyles, or alternative fun activities.

 

Healthy Campus 2020

To demonstrate a commitment to Healthy Husky, university leadership recently "took the pledge" to be a Healthy Campus. BU joined a diverse, motivated group of institutions of higher education, non-profit organizations, and government agencies committed to achieving Healthy Campus 2020 goals and objectives. Healthy Campus Partners work every day to move campuses across our nation toward better health. No two Healthy Campus initiatives are exactly alike. Healthy Husky focuses on students only at this time, yet everyone can benefit.

Healthy Campus 2020 uses a framework to support campuses in improving the health of their students, staff, and faculty. In this framework it is critical to get student input on what it means to be healthy, what students know about healthy behaviors, and how to help promote healthy choices. Although many programs are already in place, this effort is still organizing and gaining momentum. We are always looking for student input on what works and what is meaningful for them when it comes to being "healthy."
