In the Jesuit tradition that is faith does justice, HPS staff, based on the harm reduction model, will strive to inform, educate, provide, assess, and train USF students in ten health indicators: physical activity, nutrition, tobacco use, substance abuse, responsible sexual behavior, mental health, injury and violence prevention, environmental quality, immunization, and access to health care. These ten health indicators reflect the major health concerns in the United States for college students and were selected on the basis of their ability to motivate action, the availability of data to measure progress, and their importance as public health issues.
Several departments at USF, St. Ignatius Parish & St. Agnes Parish are planning a two day Bone Marrow Donor Drive in November for Estevan, a long-time St Ignatius parishioner.
