Center For Health Education And Promotion
The Elsie S. Shenk Center for Health Education and Promotion provides lifestyle education programs, hosts awareness events and information tables, and provides educational resources to students on a wide collection of topics including: alcohol and other drugs, body image, dating violence, domestic violence, healthy relationships, safer sex, sexual assault, stalking, and stress. Students are trained as peer educators to reach out to the campus community and provide individuals with important information on the benefits of leading a healthy lifestyle, resources and services available at Millersville University, and how to safely make the most out of their college experience.
The Center for Health Education and Promotion contributes to fulfilling the educational mission of Millersville University through empowering students to make informed decisions and develop life-long skills that enhance their personal well being. The Center contributes to increasing the academic success, productivity and retention of students through providing current and relevant information about high risk behaviors; raising awareness about personal decision making and the impact decisions have on an individual and their community; and engaging students in meaningful opportunities to create a healthy community in which all students can achieve their personal and academic goals.
