Meet our Saturday Sponsor – MUSC Office of Health Promotion
The Office of Health Promotion seeks to educate the MUSC community on the lifelong benefits of maintaining a healthy and well-balanced lifestyle; to empower students and employees to make informed decisions and develop skills that enhance well-being; to foster a campus environment in which members of the organization thrive intellectually, spiritually, socially, and physically by developing collaborative, cross university relationships and educational outreach guided by the MUSC mission.
Goals and Objectives:
* Develop a multi-disciplinary University-wide entity that builds on MUSC’s unique structure to foster excellence in health and wellness promotion, education, research and service activities.
* Utilize the intellectual capital of the entire organization to create a cohesive and collaborative force in health promotion and that will provide opportunities to positively impact the health of MUSC students, faculty and staff as well as members of the broader community.
* Coordinate with leaders of all areas involved in health promotion, education, research & disease prevention to establish individual, shared and university health and wellness goals; encourage coordination and collaboration both internally and with the external environment; and obtain commitment to excellence.
In addition to their above goals MUSC has also recently started an Urban Garden on campus which they use to both educate the community and students about healthy food options and creating your own urban garden. Some of the food grown in the garden is used by Sodexco in the MUSC kitchens.
