This year has given me the opportunity to push forth numerous initiatives that I hope will work to improve the health and wellness of the general student body! My fall semester began with contributing to the organization of the It’s On Us Fall Week of Action. After this, I was mostly occupied with the planning and implementation of Mental Health Awareness Week. This was an amazing endeavor, working collectively with numerous organizations and departments at MSU in order to create a week aimed at releasing the stigma of mental health particularly within college communities. I have since been working on other initiatives primarily associated with improving the recreational sports facilities on campus. Having greater access to state-of-the-art gym and training facilities is not only imperative to the physical health of students, but also their mental health. It is undeniable that the IM Sports facilities at MSU need revamping and I am committed to beginning this process. Besides these major initiatives, I have been meeting regularly with administrators at MSU associated with the Health Promotion Department, Counseling and Psychiatric Services, and the Office of the University Physician. If you are a student interested in working with any of these departments or initiatives, please feel free to email me! I am committed to making sure your voices are heard.
