Health and Wellness Expo: Student Leaders Needed

What would you say if I told you there is a UNIQUE and new leadership opportunity for you on campus? One where you can work with like-minded peers who have a passion for health and wellness and begin to network with employers in your fields of interest.

For the first year in DSU history, and a one-of-a-kind event in the Lehigh Valley, we will be hosting a Career and Opportunities Fair for our students in Nursing, PA, DPT, Exercise and Sport Physiology, and Communications (with an interest in Health Communications). This event is scheduled for Wednesday, March 29, 2017. In order to make this event truly successful and to ensure it meets the needs of our students, we are seeking STUDENT LEADERS to take ownership in the planning of this event – of course with guidance and collaboration with your friends in the Career Development Center and your faculty.

If you have any interest (even the slightest) in exploring this leadership opportunity, please provide us with information in the google form:
The Career Development Center and/or your faculty will be in touch with more details. There will be opportunities to be involved at all levels, from basic to a little bit more hands on.


Understanding Your Benefits: Tuition Exchange/Waiver Meetings, 10/6

Your Tuition Benefits:  Tuition Exchange/Waiver Meetings are scheduled for Thursday, October 6, 2016 at 10:00 a.m. and again at 3:30 p.m. in the Heritage Conference Room of the University Center.

One of the benefit offerings for full-time employees of DeSales University is the opportunity to participate in one of two Tuition Exchange scholarship programs available to dependents of eligible staff and faculty. Meetings to discuss these scholarship programs as well as the Tuition Waiver process for dependents of eligible employees who wish to attend DeSales University will be held Thursday, October 6, 2016 at 10:00 a.m. and again at 3:30 p.m. in the Heritage Room of the University Center.

This meeting is primarily for our employees who are the parents of students entering their junior or senior year of high school in the fall. If you do not have a student in one of these categories but are interested in information for future reference, you are also welcome to attend. Come with your questions – members of our Enrollment Management and Human Resources staff will be available to answer.

If you have scheduling conflicts, please let us know and we will gladly send you related material and/or handouts from the meeting.


Flu Shot Clinics, Tomorrow & 10/7

Flu shots will be available at DSU again this year. Rite Aid of Hellertown will conduct Flu Shot Clinics during the Employee Wellness Fair on Thursday, September 29, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the DeSales University Center and again during the Student Journey to Wellness Fair on Friday, October 7, from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. in the DeSales University Center. Those enrolled in Highmark Blue Shield through DeSales University will receive the shot at no charge, however, you must bring your insurance card along with you to receive the shot. Anyone not enrolled in the University sponsored health plan can still receive the shot by providing their insurance card, and Rite Aid will submit directly for payment. Those individuals may or may not incur costs. We have negotiated a special cash price for the flu shot of $25 for the Trivalent and $32 for the Quad.

You may contact your health care provider directly to discuss, or call Rite Aid Pharmacy at 610.838.7371.
