Dear officer candidates,

Interested in a health initiative? Our Vice President, Katy Parrott, is spearheading the Contraceptive Campaign.
- Why do we need it?
- The Contraceptive Campaign was initiated in Fall 2012 when Guli Fager from UHS mentioned that a major barrier students face is contraceptive availability in dormitories.
- What is it for?
- UT students currently can get 3 free condoms per day from the HPRS in the SSB. The Contraceptive Campaign was created in order to ensure that students living in dormitories as well as that frequent major campus buildings have access to condoms whenever they need them.
- What’s the plan?
- We would use receptacles from this website: http://www.capcityaidsfund.org/condoms/index.html in order to distribute condoms as well as provide education for all the receptacles so that people know where else they can get condoms and the common misconceptions and or facts about STIs. The receptacles can lock and would be only able to be refilled by TPH Condom Campaign members as well as RAs that have access to certain floors. The receptacles also control how many condoms come out at once, the maximum is two at a time. The receptacles come in an 800 and 200 condom size.
If you are interested in participating in this health initiative, please contact Katy (email@example.com)!
Hello public health friends!
Dr. Eaton and Dr. Taylor are proposing an exciting new global health opportunity — a Maymester in China! This opportunity will allow Environmental and Health Policy Public Health majors earn credit toward their public health degree. In addition, other Public Health majors will be allowed to use the trip for elective credit toward their degree. This will be a fantastic opportunity for students to learn a lot about the current environmental and policy issues being addressed in China! Students will also be able to experience a variety of social and cultural activities including field trips, open markets, tourism destinations, and exotic foods! A list of activities are in the syllabus. Please contact Dr. Taylor (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested!
