April is National STD Awareness Month: Get Yourself Tested!

April is Get Yourself Tested MonthBlack Hawk County STD Testing Centers

STD rates in the U.S. are at a record high for the 4th year in a row, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Many STDs have no symptoms so the only way to know for sure if you have an STD is to GET YOURSELF TESTED! Getting tested for STDs is a basic part of staying healthy. You can make an appointment for STD testing at the testing centers listed above or the UNI Student Health Clinic between 8 AM-4:30 PM Monday - Friday. Testing for chlamydia and gonorrhea is free and confidential. You can also make STD testing a part of your routine physical checkups to make sure your body is working the best it can be. To schedule an appointment, call the Student Health Clinic at (319) 273-2009.

Do it 4 YOU! Alcohol and Other Drug Campaign

Student Wellness Services developed an alcohol and other drug social norms campaign based on data from the Spring 2017 UNI National College Health Assessment. The data shows that many UNI Students greatly overestimate the amount of high-risk drinking or drug use that occurs at UNI. Contrary to this belief, our data shows that many UNI students are making responsible and healthy choices related to alcohol and other drugs. We are seeking to provide students with an accurate picture of alcohol and other drug use on campus in effort to influence healthy behaviors and reduce substance abuse at UNI. For questions or to learn more about the campaign, email
