By the Numbers : Reducing Risk for Alcohol-Related Problems: We start by finding out how much you already know about alcohol use at Linfield. 80% of Linfield students report drinking once a week or less or not at all. The ‘norm’ is low risk drinking! Check it out!

Women and Alcohol: Current research indicates that there are physiological gender differences when it comes to effects of alcohol. But this is not an equality issue - it's a health issue.

Alcohol Poisoning: Alcohol poisoning or Acute Alcohol Intoxication (AAI) can occur when a person drinks a large amount of alcohol in a short amount of time or if a person is particularly sensitive to alcohol for a number of different reasons. This program outlines the signs, symptoms, and general first aid procedures in the event of an AAI.


Women's Health Issues: This program addresses the special health concerns faced by women today. Topics will be selected depending on the group with a special emphasis on preventive measures.

HIV and College Students: This program highlights HIV information in a quiz-like format. See how much you already know. What will it take to change people's behavior?

It Won't Happen to Me: Hear the short story of a heterosexual women who did get HIV (probably as a college student.) You will leave this program knowing at least one person who put herself at risk. Are you at risk?

Sexual Assault Prevention Program: Hear a real story of a woman who was sexually assaulted by someone she knew during her Freshman year at Linfield. Learn the information you need to know about risk factors, reporting and how to prevent a similar situation from occurring.


Food for Thought: Information on the steps toward healthy eating: well balanced meals, vitamins and mineral supplements, current nutritional controversies, food labels, etc.

Dieting Healthfully: The word 'diet' conjures up a myriad of miracle cures, not to mention frustration. We will estimate body composition for those who are interested and help participants identify how to achieve an appropriate 'goal' weight.

An Obsession to be Thin: This program examines our obsessions with food at all levels, from eating in response to anxiety and stress, to social pressures to be thin. Information will be included on eating disorders.
