The University of Iowa has a number of resources to help you manage chronic health conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol, as well as guidance for learning more.
Managing Stress and Behavioral Health
Included in this section are on-campus and online stress management outlets, alcohol and substance use resources, sleep information, and grief and loss support. If you or a family member are going through challenging times in any of these areas, free resources are available to you.
Nutrition and Weight Management
Healthy eating is an important part of overall health, well-being, and personal energy. Learn about healthy eating from resources including the UChoose program, which helps you identify healthy food options on campus.
Whether you're an avid exerciser or just getting started, these resources can help you become more physically active or fine-tune a routine that you already have.
Resilience is the process of adapting and overcoming challenges, adversity, or significant stress. It is a set of skills that can be developed by intentionally changing thoughts and behaviors. Information, classes, and videos are offered to help you build resilience and bounce back faster.
Stopping smoking or tobacco use is not easy. The addictive nature of cigarettes, vaping, and chewing tobacco is extremely strong. Fortunately, the university offers programs to support you, emotionally and financially, in your efforts to quit.
