Health Education strives to be a leader in helping our campus community to accept responsibility for their health and well being. We encourage students and staff to identify the benefits of healthy lifestyle choices and risk reduction strategies in order to achieve academic, professional and personal success. The Health Education Department at the CSUB Student Health Services focuses on the promotion of good health and the prevention of diseases and conditions that college students experience the most. Stress, nutrition, exercise, drug abuse prevention, sexuality and birth control education are among the issues facing college students. The Health Education Assistant is trained to help students understand the health issues most important to them, ways to prevent health conditions and diseases, and tools to cope with health related issues as they arise.
