Health and Wellness Promotion

Education, Engagement, and Prevention

Through a wide variety of support programs and services, Health and Wellness Promotion at UCM can help you stay safe and healthy, and help you get connected to local community resources. We believe education, engagement, and prevention are powerful tools, and we're here to help you use them.

Our office uses the Spectrum of Prevention tool, which promotes a range of activities for effective prevention. Used nationally in prevention initiatives, including violence prevention and injury prevention, it provides a framework for a more comprehensive understanding of prevention, including six levels for strategy development. Learn more about the Spectrum of Prevention.
