Student Health and Journalism
About the Course:
Sather Health is a website established in September 2011 that aims to deliver accurate health information to students. We intend to become a trusted online health resource by producing health promotion material catering specifically to the student population and providing a platform where all students can discuss health topics relevant to their lives. Sather Health is an ongoing project, and we are constantly rolling out new features. Operating an ASUC-sponsored student publication, we know that a student's life can be challenging but very rewarding. As a result, we have carefully crafted a series of articles on the most common health issues faced by college and high school students, and they also routinely contribute opinion blogs and discussion posts on the most current of health topics.
Members of this DeCal will become the newest class of Sather Health associate writers. As a part of the course, you will learn about health journalism in the college context and complete a final project on a related subject of your choosing. You will also be expected to compose at least five pieces of articles and/or blogs for the site during the course of the semester. Since the amount of time we have is limited, weekly DeCal attendance is critical, and rare exceptions will be made. A fair portion of the sessions will coincide with monthly Sather Health meetings that occur at the same time and in the same place as the section.
How to Enroll:
To enroll in the DeCal, you must apply to become an associate writer for Sather Health. Please visit our official website found at http://www.satherhealth.org/ and click "Volunteer Opportunities" for more information. We are no longer accepting applications.
