Health Fair @ BCC on Nov. 9 from 11 am to 1:30 pm

5 November 2017

This service learning project for students by students is the highlight of the semester. It is hosted by BCC’s Health Education Students.

Join us in the BCC Atrium on Thursday, November 9, 2017, from 111:00 am to 1:30 pm!

As we have done for the last 10+ years, each semester our students work hard to design, plan, research and present a Health Fair to the entire college community.  Every aspect of the planning is done by the students, including selecting topics, researching them, creating vibrant display boards and important handouts for participants, out-reaching to community agencies and resources, and inviting vendors to table.

Visit BCC’s Social Work and Human Services website for more information on the Social Work and Human Services Paraprofessional Certificate Program.

Also be sure to visit the BCC Wellness website for services available to students.

ERASE the STIGMA: There is nothing cool, strong, or hero-worthy about not sleeping or eating

1 November 2017

Project LETS presents www.LetsEraseTheStigma.com


not healthy flyer

There is nothing cool, strong, or hero-worthy about not sleeping or eating.

It’s midterm season for many students – which can encourage a disturbing culture of not sleeping, eating, or taking care of oneself: and pushing one’s body and mind to total burnout or point of breakdown.

This is not healthy or okay.

Encourage yourself & folks around you to:

  • Check in with each other on a genuine level
  • Hold space for conversations outside of academics
  • Bring each other snacks/drinks/meals
  • Not compare/discuss grades
  • Take breaks! Do fun things!
  • Be honest about your schedules – are you over-committed? Are you taking too many classes? Is there anything you can cut?
  • Not glamorize unhealthy behaviors, such as not sleeping or eating. Don’t be afraid to check in with friends privately & directly to let them know you are concerned.
