Health Education and Wellness
The mission of Beu Health Center is to enhance the educational process through assisting students in the modification or removal of health-related barriers to learning by providing appropriate medical services and collaborative programming.
The Office of Health Education contributes to the overall responsibility of Western Illinois University for the education of students in the area of lifestyle and behavior that promotes individual as well as community health. Professional staff, graduate assistants and student health peer educators provide a wide variety of wellness outreach programs and services.
Outreach programs, as well as individual consultation regarding specific health issues, are available to WIU students. There is no fee for services. (See Programs and Services--- link to side bar)
