Center for Health Education & Wellness

The Center for Health Education and Wellness—CHEW for short—is the health promotion arm of the Student Health and Wellness Center. The focus of CHEW is two-fold: supporting individual students in their goals for healthy behavior change while cultivating a healthy environment in which individuals will be more likely to be successful.

CHEW’s vision is to create and sustain a learning environment where healthy behaviors are an integral component to academic and individual success. CHEW proactively responds to the needs of a diverse undergraduate and graduate student population, with an emphasis on prevention, risk reduction, and overall wellness practices

We want CHEW to be your leading source for college health information and programs to support a healthier JH-YOU. We are dedicated to making the most of teachable moments to influence student health practices. Some of the services we offer include:

  • Customizable programs
  • Wellness coaching
  • Discounted condoms
  • Free 5-7 minute seated back-rubs at sponsored campus events

The CHEW CREW, consisting of trained students, conducts a variety of programs that support and affirm student health and wellness through the delivery of fun and interactive programming. During the academic year, CHEW staff and its CREW of peer health educators can be found on campus providing information on various college health issues.
