IU Community Health


The Community Health Department of Indiana University Health offers one time education presentations geared to specific topics of interest.  A variety of programs are offered but most fit into one of these categories:

Environmental Health – The program is called Healthy Homes and it’s a one hour discussion on what types of toxins we bring into the home, how the toxins affect our health, and safe alternatives. 

Sexual Health – Programs are offered for all ages on the benefits of making healthy choices regarding sexual health, STDs, and birth control.  Programs are also available for parents on how to talk with teens about sex.

Tobacco Prevention or Cessation Tips – This presentation can be geared to meet the specific needs of a group and it can be anything tobacco related, even how to motivate one to quit.

Stress Management – This talk is about balance in life and includes a self-test to determine how much stress one has compared to how well we’re doing taking care of ourselves.  I try to motivate people to find healthy ways to deal with stress.

Child Safety Prevention –  The Safety Health Educator does these talks and it can be anything related to safety (household safety, car seat safety, poison prevention, etc.).

Obesity Prevention – This is talk is presented by an IU Health dietician or educator with a focus on healthy food choices and more active lifestyles rather than a focus on dieting.

Nutrition – IU Health has several dieticians who specialize in nutritional awareness.  Some specific topics include: eating disorders, fat school, think your drink, and just good ole’ nutrition tips that anyone can use to eat healthier.

Dementia or Alzheimer’s Awareness – This talk is presented by the Alzheimer’s Educator.  Topics include simple things you can change to make life easier for someone with dementia, how to help with a diagnosis, or stress management for caregivers.
