Filling the gaps

During a recent visit to the Food Bank, one volunteer noted that the shelves were nearly empty. In response, the health club teamed up with the Health Education Association of Utah (HEAU) to collect canned, boxed and dry products, as well as items such as diapers and toothpaste to donate to the Utah Food Bank and Community Action Services of Utah. The drive was in conjunction with HEAU’s spring conference on March 6, and ran through March 5.

The goal for the food drive at the conference was a minimum of three items per person. All donations were collected at any of three drop-off locations on campus: PE 147, SC 101, or the north entrance of the LA building.

HEAUVU is a service club on campus that provides service and undergraduate research opportunities for students in the field of health education.

Other service activities have included Relay for Life (American Cancer Society), Provo River Clean-Up, Sub-for-Santa, and Make a Difference Day.

Professional development activities have included resume building, health internship opportunities in Ghana and health education in the medical profession.

The club is currently seeking sophomores and juniors who are interested in being part of the club leadership for the 2009-2010 school year.
