The University of New Hampshire’s Department of Health Management and Policy prepares undergraduates to become leading health professionals in the ever-expanding Health Care Industry. Through this department, students get exposed to many aspects of health care, including data analysis, finance management, epidemiology, ethics, and policy. A reoccurring theme throughout the Department’s courses is health promotion.

               The Department’s Student Organization for Health Leadership (SOHL) is holding the Second Annual Wildcat 5k this Sunday, April 21, to raise funds for student scholarships and promote healthy behaviors in the UNH community. This event promotes healthy and active lifestyles. Last year’s event raised over $3000 for Health Management and Policy students. It was a beautiful Sunday with over 200 students and community members participating in the race.  The Department hopes this year’s event will be even better. The 5K route through College Woods can be found here. The race starts at 9am. Be sure to register online here:

This sounds like so much fun, especially since the weather has been so nice! College woods is so beautiful this time of the year! I love that it helps raise money for scholarships!

I ran this last year and had a lot of fun! It felt great to be able support SOHL and they also gave us free food and water bottles! My friends and I had a great time and really enjoyed running through college woods.
