GatorWell’s Helmet Safety Campaign

Filed under Athletic & Health, Opportunities on September 21, 2015.

According to the Gainesville Police Department, in 2014 there were 225 bicycle, moped, and scooter accidents in Gainesville.  The University of Florida Student Senate recently passed a scooter safety resolution and are planning a scooter safety awareness week for October 19 – 23.   To compliment these efforts, GatorWell Health Promotion Services has created a Helmet Safety Campaign for students that use bicycles, scooters, and motorcycles.  This campaign aims to increase consistent and correct helmet use among UF students that use bicycles, scooters, and motorcycles.  Please contact Sara Martin (s.martin@ufl.edu or 273-4454) or visit the GatorWell website: http://gatorwell.ufsa.ufl.edu/programs/health_communication#HCP for more information and to request materials.
