Wellness Connection - Presentations

Health and wellness presentations and interactive sessions are available on a variety of topics, including: nutrition, alcohol, sexual health, sexual assault, body image, stress, and fitness. Presentations can be customized to fit your needs, and most include interactive components to get your audience involved! These exciting, hour-long programs are presented by health professionals and peer educators.

Available Presentations

We offer a selection of ready-made presentations, with the option to customize the content to meet your program requirements. These options provide an easy way to add educational content to Residence Hall programs, fraternity and sorority meetings, conference sessions, and club meetings. Don't re-invent the wheel! If you need a wellness presentation, we'll come to you!

Please be aware that a minimum of two weeks notice is required to schedule a presentation. All presentations requested for Tuesday evenings need to end no later than 6:30pm due to Student Wellness Network meetings that are held at this time.

Custom Presentations

If you're looking for something specific or unique, we've got you covered! Custom presentations require advanced notice (more than 2 weeks), but they are worth the wait. Here are some examples of custom presentations:

  • Spring Break Safety presented through live action skits. The audience was split into groups of 5, each group was given 30 minutes to come up with a skit that portrayed their assigned list of Spring Break Safety tips. The facilitator introduced safety tips, provided guidance to groups developing their skits, and acted as a host for the performances. 
  • Event Planning with Stakeholders. The facilitator gave an overview of the event planning process, then split the audience into groups of 8. Each group was given a packet, and individual members were assigned different roles to play during negotiations. The event planners worked with different stakeholders to simulate planning an event within a budget. 
  • Brief Nutrition and Body Image Overview. Rather than one hour-long presentation, this session was split into brief back-to-back presentations for groups of students cycling through a conference setting. A lot of information was packed into the 10 minute format and repeated for each group. 

To request a custom presentation, send an e-mail to wellness@bgsu.edu with a description of what you're looking for and the goals for the presentation.

Professional Presentations

Go straight to the experts for a professional presentation. We recommend the following contacts for presentation on specialty topics, or if you need a presentation in response to a specific incident or concern (e.g. you suspect eating disorders, alcohol abuse, or unlawful behavior may be a concern in your organization). These individuals do not work in the Wellness Connection but have been available for presentations in the past.
