SAMs Say Health Promotion Campaign for Student Athletes (PDF)

 

The campaign is conducted through the course EDHS 3500: “Practicum in Peer Alcohol Education” in the University of Virginia's Curry School of Education and taught by Holly Deering.  Students gain practical application of health promotion theory, knowledge and skills to work in a University setting through active participation in creating a substance misuse prevention, health, and wellness campaign.  Students assess areas of concern within the UVA student-athlete community and utilize that information to create a series of prevention posters.  The final product is presented during monthly SAM meetings and displayed for all student-athletes in locker-rooms and academic affairs offices.
