Educating & Promoting!
The University endorses and supports the position of the American College Health Association (ACHA) that the primary response of colleges and universities is to prevent the spread of communicable disease(s) through education.
Health Services has a responsibility to insure the TSU community receives education on disease prevention in order to minimize the spread of infection, and to alleviate anxiety concerning bacterial meningitis, influenza, HIV and other communicable disease(s). Health Services is concerned with the rights and health of the individual and with the general well-being of the TSU community.
Understanding that college life extends beyond the classroom, Health Services conducts seminars and peer lead outreach programs to encourage and promote healthy living. Each year Health Services plans health awareness events that include health fairs, blood drives, and bone marrow registration drives, seasonal flu shots, and Free HIV/ STI testing. Campaigns are presented annually, focusing on HIV prevention, breast cancer awareness, smoking cessation and other health related topics.
We welcome student volunteers to assist with health promotions. To participate in peer lead outreach programs and gain valuable community service hours, students and student organizations can contact Health Services at 713 313-7173.
