Health Promotion - Helping create a healthier campus to enhance student success

Presentations for Student Groups

Health education presentations are available to the campus community wherever you want to promote health and wellness!

Student groups are encouraged to request presentations which are facilitated by health educators, social workers, or peer health educators.

We offer standard presentations on a variety of topics, and we will also work with you to create a specialized presentation to meet the needs of your community. 

Presentations are generally 50 to 90 minutes in length.

How to schedule a presentation

Requestors are responsible for choosing their topic(s) of interest and for coordinating the date, time, and location of the presentation. Presentations must be requested at least 2 weeks in advance. 

Location: All presentations must take place on campus (Greek housing and residential halls are considered on campus) and be affiliated with SDSU.

Who can request a presentation? On-campus including faculty, staff, student organization leaders, residence hall coordinators,  and others in the campus community may request health presentations.
