Students, faculty, and staff of both colleges had the opportunity to get labs and screenings such as blood sugar and lipid profiles completed by University Hospital team members. There was also carotid artery plaque scans and other educational information available for making healthier life choices.

Beginning August 1, 2013, Georgia Military College’s Augusta campus will become completely tobacco free, adding to the total number of over 1,150 college campuses across the United States with tobacco-free policies. A poll of the student body at the Augusta campus resulted in the new policy, indicating students want to make healthier choices and are encouraging their peers to do the same by eliminating tobacco from our campus environment.
