Health Promotion empowers all Aggies to embrace a culture of holistic well-being that fosters their academic, personal, and professional success. Health Promotion and Student Health Services collaborate on events, health education distribution, and various resources to help educate and promote the health of students at Texas A&M University.

We’re moving back to main campus in Spring 2020! Learn about the new Student Services Building here.
