CUs health center informs people of its services and products
Representatives of various Wardenburg Health Care Services gathered together on Monday morning for the Wardenburg Student Health Fair.
Services like sex education, woman’s health, stress management, dental such as All On 4 and sports medicine provided information including pamphlets and brochures.
“This fair is a service project for the spring to show students what Wardenburg has to offer,” said Lindsey Monett, a junior integrative physiology major and an active participant with the student health board.
The fair offered information on what the services can do for CU students, how much they cost and how to make appointments. The various programs encourage students to utilize the assistance provided.
“Anyone can go and use these services. We want to make sure people know their options and take advantage,” Monett said.
The sex education and women’s health clinic gave away free condoms, Skintimate shave gel and other little treats to promote its cause. The booth also gave away information on various sexual health related issues and informed students on the free services like HIV testing.
The stress management program offered free massages, aromatherapy oils, cold care kits and tea to anyone who took an interest in the booth. Wardenburg offers these activities regularly to relieve stress. Also, stress management tips and information were provided.
The dental booth included a free toothbrush, toothpaste and floss. For a CU student, the cost of Wardenburg dental program can be a lot cheaper than other dentists. Yet few students even know Wardenburg has a dental program that offers basic dental procedures, dental implants, invisalign braces, etc. Dental implants and teeth whitening procedures are two of the most common dental needs of a CU student, so this dental program is a plus for them.
The Sports Medicine Clinic offers many services to assist with recovery such as screenings for minor injuries, acupuncturists, chiropractors, massage therapists, orthopedists and physical therapists. Some of these services are complimentary.
The Wardenburg Student Health Fair saw a constant crowd of students learning what Wardenburg has to offer.
“I had a general idea on what Wardenburg was all about but never got involved,” said Paul Brangers, a senior integrative physiology major. “It’s really amazing.”
