The Geneseo Healthguards are a group of student wellness volunteers who serve as ambassadors and liaisons to the campus from Student Health and Counseling. They provide resources and raise awareness about important college health issues like safer sex, responsible alcohol use, nutrition, stress management, healthy relationships, mental health, and sleep. Healthguards are trained in these areas by professional staff members at Student Health and Counseling. Healthguards are not experts; they are students who care deeply about college health and wellness.
