News and Events

Prevention & Wellness Services is currently accepting applications to the Peer Health Educator program, a unique volunteer opportunity for passionate Western students committed to enhancing their own health and the health of Western's community. Peer Health Educators come from all academic majors and apply their unique skills, diverse perspectives, and the extensive training they receive to increase the "health literacy" of Western's campus community.

Prevention and Wellness Services partners with Bloodworks Northwest to host a three-day blood drive each quarter. In addition to the large blood drives, there are 1-2 smaller drives during each quarter when the Bloodmobile is in Red Square and students, staff and faculty can donate. The Western campus community donates approximately 1,000 pints of blood each academic year. For more info, including dates and info on how to prepare, visit our Blood Drives page!
