Health Education and Promotion (HEP) is a department sponsored by UC Davis Student Health and Counseling Services. It is a primary resource to help students enhance their wellness through student-centered education. Professional staff and students focus on issues related to nutrition, physical activity, Sexual Health, Wellness, stress management, as well as Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drugs (ATOD) Interested UC Davis students are recruited each winter and spring quarters to work as student staff or volunteers for the following academic year. Students apply to work in one of the following three areas: Sexual Health, Wellness, and Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drugs (ATOD). At the beginning of the school year, student staff and volunteers participate in a training process to prepare themselves for promoting healthy and informed choices in the UC Davis student body population. Each group is supervised by HEP professional staff.
