Guys invited to take "time out" for health


A men’s health week event for students will be held at the Wellness Center through Thursday, March 29, from 7 to 10 p.m. If you are involved in RecSports, stop by prior to your team event. If not, you can just drop by anytime.

Student Health Services will check your blood pressure, height and weight, and calculate your body mass index. The Wellness Center staff will conduct free fitness assessments. Guys will also have an opportunity to use the computers at the Wellness Center to take online mental health assessments and the E-Chug online alcohol assessment.

Participants will receive a free Passport to Health T-shirt (while supplies last). Free men’s health booklets will also be provided.

Men who participate can register to win a paid team sport entry fee for next year or entry fee at a reduced price, football, basketball, signed poster of the 2006-2007 UND men’s hockey team, a pair of movie passes, or food court gift certificates.

This event is sponsored by Student Health Services, Wellness Center, University Counseling Center, and ADAPT. Door prizes were provided by Scheel’s Sports, UND Athletics, Student Health Services and Wellness Center/RecSports. For more information, contact the Student Health Promotion office at 777-2097.
