College health drive inspires students

Students at West Nottinghamshire College have been urged to look at leading healthier lifestyles this week through a college-wide health initiative.

The ‘New Year, New Me’ event, organised by the college’s student health and welfare team, saw students from all campuses join together at the health event at the Derby Road campus on Wednesday (14 January) to look at ways of improving their health and wellbeing.

Advice stands with information about smoking cessation, healthy eating, STI screening and drug awareness were available for students to gather confidential advice from.

The college also provided details about getting into sporting activities held at the college and volunteering and hairdressing and beauty therapy students were on hand to give hair braiding styles and mini manicures.

Students were also offered nutritional grazing pots of fruit, nuts and seeds to encourage healthy eating.

Student health and welfare advisor Mark Cantrill said: “We all have a responsibility to look after ourselves to ensure we live long and healthy lives. Today’s event gave students the chance to get as much advice about their wellbeing as possible, so they can make informed decisions about their health choices.

“I’ve been impressed by how much interest in the range of health initiatives the students have shown and hopefully they’ve left the event inspired to make positive changes to their lives.”
