Having a conversation about mental health is challenging, but it is an important step in ending the stigma and connecting individuals with the help they need. Kognito trainings teach faculty, staff, and students to recognize mental distress, with the goal of connecting students to support services. Get your training for free!
The Cuesta Student Health Services and Nutrition Department have teamed up to offer a free program to students: NEAT (Nutrition Education Action Team). Students can come to the Health Center and meet with a peer educator to learn about nutrition, discuss their personalized diet analysis, and set positive lifestyle and nutritional goals such as nutrition for athletics, fitness, weight changes, or just to get a few ideas for SMART goal changes after discussing their diet analysis.
There is a hero inside each of us, ready to make a difference when others need our help.
When you donate blood you are a hero, and you can get that feeling over and over again throughout the year. Think about how the people who needed those donations feel about you. You are, without a doubt, a hero to them.
To find the hero in you, simply visit a Vitalant donor center or blood drive in your area. To schedule an appointment, click on “Donate Blood” above. For more information about donating blood, visit www.vitalant.org.
IMPORTANT reminder regarding Measles (Rubeola): Public health officials urge people to avoid immediately going to a medical office
1. They are not immune AND
2. They have been exposed AND
3. They have symptoms
Instead, call a health care provider or urgent care center by telephone to create an entry plan to avoid exposing others in waiting rooms.
Getting vaccinated is a very effective way to prevent measles. People who are not immunized, or who have not received the full immunization, are at high risk of catching the disease. Now is a good time to check to see if you have been immunized. If you have not, there are several ways you can get vaccinated. Contact your insurance provider to see if the vaccine is covered at no charge. Anyone, regardless of insurance, can be vaccinated at the Public Health Department. If you are unsure of your immunity, your doctor can check with a simple blood test. Cuesta Student Health Center does not carry the vaccine or provide serology testing.
For Further Information For further information about measles, please call your local public health department or visit the www.cdc.gov/measles
