Student Health Assistance & Resilience Program (SHARP)
What is SHARP?
The Student Health Assistance and Resilience Program (SHARP) is designed to help you develop lifelong skills for managing your health and well-being. We believe that healthy students are better learners, but learning to take control of your health may be overwhelming and difficult to do if you don’t know how. A SHARP Ambassador will work with you to create a plan that will enable you to make healthy lifestyle changes, and assist in creating a wellness plan that is fun and achievable.
