Peers Offering Wellness Education and Resources

Members of POWER work in teams to sponsor and facilitate events related to health and well-being. We have the opportunity to plan events and programs, create social media and marketing campaigns, present to student organizations, assist in larger Office of Health Promotion events and more! We can also host interactive health programs with student organizations and other departments. These programs are available by request, so be sure to check them out.

We are a group of 20 students from all majors, years and backgrounds at Nova, but we have one thing in common- we are passionate about health and well-being! Through trainings focused on various content areas (alcohol and other drugs, sexual health, sexual violence, nutrition, mental well-being, communication, time management) AND practice in fields such as public speaking, facilitation, professionalism, and program planning and evaluation ... we work to bring new and creative programs and initiatives to the campus!

We are part of the Office of Health Promotion which allows us to have a greater impact on the Nova community.

Applications open every semester, and we hope to welcome new students to empower our fellow Wildcats to take health and well-being into their own hands!

Cook-Less Cuisine

This program is designed to provide first- or second-year students with information and resources regarding healthy eating and recipes that they can easily recreate in their residence hall. This program includes a few rounds of trivia, microwave safety information and a cooking demo with free samples!

Don't Blame It On the Alcohol!

How much do you really know about alcohol? Binge drinking, blacking out, BAC?? Test your drink smarts and learn how to drink smart with this interactive program. Students will walk away with some strategies to help themselves and their friends stay safe while partying.

Healthy Happy Hour

Looking for something to do before that big event on or off campus? Contact us to set up a "Healthy Happy Hour." POWER's Healthy Happy Hour series is a customizable program that can include snacks, games, prizes, photo booths and more!

POWER Bootcamp

Let's get physical, Wildcats! Wear your sweats, your sneaks and get ready to learn (and try) some easy fitness routines for your everday use!

STI Jeopardy

Get ready for some healthy competition, game show style. Test your knowledge on sexually transmitted infections with this game of jeopardy. Students will leave learning about STI transmission, symptoms, treatments and more, as well as how to both protect and respect themselves and their partner(s).

Create Your Own
