Jan Plan is the perfect time to introduce new habits to improve your overall wellness. Students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to participate in this year’s Jan Plan Wellness Challenge.

Each week participants will be entered in a drawing to win a gift card to a local restaurant – for more information and to join click here.

We care about the health of our community and we want our students, faculty, and staff to be healthy so they can be their best selves
This season, we are excited to announce that the Dean of the College is providing FREE Flu shots!
If you missed the campus wide flu shot clinics, you can still get a flu shot at no charge. Simply book an appointment with the nurses-we’ll do the rest. Faculty/Staff: Remember, the nurse is available until 8 p.m., so you can come by after hours.
Equally important is the prevention of seasonal influenza by washing your hands or using hand sanitizer, proper cough etiquette (coughing into your elbows), and avoiding public spaces if you do become sick.
We hope you have a healthy fall and winter!
Brought to you by the Garrison Foster Health Center, SHOC and the Dean of the College.
