Health Promotion and Wellness (HPaW)
Health Promotion and Wellness is the primary provider of health promotion, education, and prevention programs and services for Northwestern University students. Our current area of focus is on alcohol and other drugs. In the near future, as we begin to implement a multi-year strategic plan for expanded wellness initiatives, we will move into addressing physical and mental health promotion.
The Center for Awareness, Response, and Education (CARE) falls under the purview of Health Promotion and Wellness and addresses sexual health and sexual violence. Organizationally, HPaW and CARE are both part of the Northwestern University Health Service, a AAAHC-accredited health care facility.
