Health Promotion in MIC
As a Health Promoting College we endeavour to promote the health and wellbeing of all members of the college community through policy development, the provision of programmes and activities and the implementation of specific health promotion strategies.
We hope to empower staff and students to make informed decisions about their health in the hope that they will integrate healthy practices in their daily lives. We work in partnership with Services and Departments at Mary immaculate College and outside agencies.
We endeavour using evidence based health promotion strategies in our work. We encourage suggestions and feedback on how we can develop our services.
We provide many resources on health to both staff and students. We have a wide selection of health promotion materials which we make available as teaching practice aids and as general information sources. We run different awareness days, programmes and workshops during the year.
We provide confidential one-to-one support and advice on lifestyle change in the form of Brief Interventions in the areas of healthy eating, physical activity, alcohol consumption, and smoking. We can also refer you to relevant services in the community.
We support and participate in health related campus policy development. We undertake and participate in health promotion research projects.
