Wearing a condom is like wearing a mask; it can take some getting used to – but it keeps people safe. Just like with COVID, many people who have sexually transmitted infections are asymptomatic, and don’t know they’re infected. Using condoms, or other barriers, like dental dams, can significantly reduce the chance of transmitting or contracting an STI.

Order a gloveBOX to make sure you always have a condom on-hand when you need one! Check out the link in our linktree!

Dietitians from SHaW are conducting a study that aims to refine a rapid tool to screen and test messages for physical activity among college students. We are asking for your voluntary and confidential participation in an online survey that can assist us in creating this tool. The online survey should take approximately 25 minutes to complete. It asks about what physical activities and foods you like or dislike, your health behaviors (diet, sleeping, stress, body image, weight concerns) and non-identifiable information (age, gender, ethnicity, student/alumna status). Your responses will be compiled with other responses to help us refine and improve the tool to screen for physical activity. The refined tool can be used to provide guidance for health promotion programs at UConn. Following completion of the survey you will be able to enter into a raffle to receive a $20 Wal-Mart Gift card. This survey was approved by UConn IRB (X17-085).

Thank you in advance for your voluntary and confidential participation.
The link to the survey is: https://uconn.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_25i8p6dcGhuRiRf
