Activity: Use Self Care unit at the Healthier “U” Office @ the Memorial Union
Date: Wednesday, February 29, 2012
Went to the Healthier U office at the Union to find out exactly what the self care unit was!!!>>@# I had no idea what was involved in this process. To my surprise, they had a section of their office where students can take their weight, blood pressure and even height. I was impressed. I always thought I had to go to the Wellness Center to get my weight checked as I didn’t know of anywhere else on campus, unless I went to Student Health office to see a doctor…then would I get to check my weight and height if I wanted, blood pressure is mandatory. It is so easy for everyone to do it themselves and especially for those who are secretive in wanting others to see their weight, its kind-of private…it works for that too. But it was very informative to know that that kind of convenience was right there, since I go there almost every week and I will be sure to tell other colleagues of mine that this service is available to them also.
