Dear Media Representative, Enclosed is a media kit to inform you of the upcoming and ongoing activities within the Health Promotion Department at the University of Oregon. As a whole, the Health Center works to enhance the educational process by minimizing health related barriers to personal development and learning. Moreover, the Health Promotion Program functions as the outreach and educational component of the health center, which aims to empower students and the campus at large toward healthy choices and risk reduction practices. In addition, the Health Promotion Program is a value driven program. The five fundamental values that guide the Health Promotion Program are: • • • • •
Health: State of well being that balances physical, emotional, intellectual and social aspects of a person. Education: The process of acquiring the knowledge, skills and values to achieve health. Community Relationships: Collaborating with individuals and groups within and beyond the university community to achieve common goals. Students: Creation and implementation of services and programs for students and, when ever possible, by students. Quality: Highest standard of service, including accuracy, timeliness and effectiveness.
By providing nutritional services, tobacco cessation program, wellness planning and presentations, patient education, campuswide health promotion activities and running the Peer Health Internship Program, the Health Promotion Program can help raise awareness about current public health issues. In addition to outreach and education, the program aims to create positive policy change in order to improve the campus and community as a whole. In order to successfully combat current public health issues of all kinds, we need your help. The Health Promotion Program is currently expanding and addressing many issues regarding policy change. We would appreciate it if you would aid us in publicizing some of our events and services. Enclosed is a media kit, comprised of a press release, a print ad, a radio spot and a services brochure.
Please help empower students and the campus at large towards a better, healthier environment. Contact Paula Staight at (541) 3462728 for more information.
