Healthguards mission Statement

The Geneseo Healthguards are a volunteer peer health education group sponsored by the Lauderdale Center for Student Health and Counseling and supervised by the Coordinator of Health Promotion.  The mission of the Geneseo Healthguard program is to enhance the health and wellbeing of SUNY Geneseo students through student-driven outreach programs focused on positive health promotion. The Geneseo Healthguard program promotes making healthy lifestyle choices and reducing risky behaviors which can negatively impact one’s health. The healthy lifestyle choices and risk reduction skills learned through the Geneseo Healthguard program benefit students during their college years as well as throughout their lifespan.
