Melinda's Project

As a special project for Health Services, Graduate Assistant Melinda Moz created a health information file of internet resources on a vast variety of topics. She utilized over 100 college health service websites in obtaining the information to build our file. The health information file has already been used to create handouts sheets for students, as a resource for Resident Advisor programs on health topics, and as a resource for the Resident Advisor Training Program.

An article about Melinda's Project appeared in the Summer 1997 issue of Connections Quarterly Newsletter for college health nurses, and is on the World Wide Web at (Carol Mulvihill is the Editor of Connections Quarterly.)

In addition, Melinda assisted in the planning and organization of the very successful Annual Health Fair held on campus in April 1996. There were 20 booths offering a wide variety of health information and screenings for cholesterol, glucose, and blood pressure.
