Assistant Director of Public Affairs

(April 7, 2008)--The UTSA student organization SHADES (Sexual Health Alcohol and Drug Education for Students) and UTSA Student Health Services will host two free events to promote health and wellness education -- an important component of disease prevention. One event is just for women, and the other is just for men. Although the events are student-focused, UTSA faculty and staff members are encouraged to participate.

  • "Girls' Night Out" is 7-9 p.m., Wednesday, April 9 in the University Center Denman Room (2.01.28), 1604 Campus.
  • "Guys' Night In: Playing the Game" is 6-9 p.m., Wednesday, April 16 at the Chisholm Hall theater/activity room, 1604 Campus.

"Girls' Night Out" will promote health and wellness, and will feature health information, breast self-examination lessons, facials, make-up tips, music and food. For more information, contact Howaida Werfelli, UTSA health education coordinator, at (210) 458-6428.

The goal of "Guys' Night In: Playing the Game" is to raise awareness of HIV/AIDS and other STDs, Hepatitis and alcohol/substance abuse. Health information will be distributed, and there will be free food and music -- and a chance for a spot in the Guitar Hero Tournament. For more information, contact Matthew Torrez at (210) 458-6808.
