Health Education and Promotion

The Health Education & Promotion (HEP) Center strives to promote wellness and student success by providing engaged, dynamic, and educational programming and services for the WKU student body.

We utilize data from credible sources and evidence-based research to inform the campus community and thus empower students to create their own positive lifestyle, make constructive behavioral choices, and incorporate risk reduction practices.

The following products and services are offered for FREE to students:

  • Sexual health supplies:
    • Male condoms
    • Female condoms (FC2s)
    • Lubricant
    • Dental dams
    • Pregnancy tests
  • Menstrual hygiene products:
    • Tampons
    • Pads
    • Menstrual discs
  • "What the Health" peer-health advising sessions
  • Interactive presentations and workshops

(Stop by our office to pick up the supplies or meet with one of our peer health educators!)
