Health Enhancement Committee

The Health Enhancement Committee is comprised of health care professionals and support service members that work together for the benefit of the student-athlete.

Our purpose is to recognize any student-athlete issues that arise as part of their student-athlete experience and address them through a multi-disciplinary approach.  We want to educate the student-athlete to become better aware of their overall health (physical, mental, and emotional) that will translate into allowing them achieve their full athletic potential. We also want to develop programs to assist the student-athlete to become better overall individuals for their future beyond their collegiate careers.
