The Mental and Physical Health Committee is choosing to focus on the health and wellness of the students at the University of Louisville, as well as to educate individuals about inequalities in health care and to support students through the COVID-19 pandemic. So far this year, we spearheaded initiatives in mental health by organizing events that aim to help students relieve stress. We also worked within the medical community by hosting an American Red Cross blood drive on campus.
Our biweekly committee meetings encourage discussion on current mental and physical health related topics, including the distribution and facts of the COVID-19 vaccine, medical racism, and various opportunities for certifications. Our committee is devoted to activism, inclusion, and equality.
For those of you interested in joining our committee, know that we host most of our meetings, events, and service opportunities virtually for everyone's safety. Even so, we continue to create new ways to support our student community. Going virtual has been difficult, but our members have risen to the challenge and continue to influence our campus in positive ways.
