Public Health and Wellbeing:
Creating a Community of Care
Wellness at Penn’s Public Health and Wellbeing division seeks to create a community of care through advocacy, education, and action. Our staff focuses on a wide variety of healthy living topics including sleep, hygiene, stress reduction, nutrition, exercise, and sexual health. Key initiatives include annual flu immunization clinics, which vaccinate more than 2,000 people a year, and yearlong sexual wellness education through events such as “Sex Camp” and “Sex Jeopardy.”
The University of Pennsylvania requires students to meet certain health requirements, including carrying adequate health insurance coverage and immunization against diseases. Insurance and immunization information can be completed by students using online forms.
