Wellness & Health Promotion Services (WHPS) offers a wide variety of services and programming aimed at helping all UCF students be healthy knights! We promote healthy lifestyle habits associated with higher academic performance by providing outreach and educational workshops on safer sex, nutrition, stress management, alcohol and other drugs, sleep, healthy relationships and body image. To support student safety we provide training in sexual violence prevention as well as HIV Testing and Risk Reduction Counseling. We offer massage and biofeedback assisted relaxation training to help students manage stress and we coordinate the Healthy Knights 2020 initiative, an SDES collaborative effort focused on promoting the health of all UCF students.
To learn more about any of the topics mentioned check out our Health Huts seen around campus, or follow us on Facebook / Twitter at HealthyKnight.
