Training held for newest Healthy Wildcats

Six students have joined the Healthy Wildcats – newly trained to promote health and wellness at Penn College through events and advocacy – following a daylong retreat at the Thompson Professional Development Center on Saturday. The group learned strategies for encouraging healthy behaviors among peers, along with skills in listening, response and referral, intervention, and programming and presentation. For more information, contact Kristi L. Hammaker, health and fitness specialist, by email or at  ext. 7621. Those involved in the training were, front row from left, Julie H. Carr, of Souderton, a nursing major;  Tyler D. Hodge, of Gillett, enrolled in electrical technology; and Caitlin Stump, of Danville, also a nursing student. Back row from left are Chelsea D. Woodland, an applied human services major from State College; nursing student Duncan T. Maitland, of Jersey Shore; Kyani L. Lawrence, of New Rochelle, N.Y., a pre-nursing major; and Hammaker. Each member committed to attending organizational meetings and assisting with health-promotion activities on campus, starting with Sexual Responsibility Week (Feb. 10-14).
