-The Community Health Initiative (CHI) trains students as liaisons to the University Health Services (UHS) in undergraduate houses, freshman dorms, and other living centers at Harvard. Leverett House is especially important to CHI as it was the first House to support a CHI pilot program. CHI takes an upstream approach to students health, focusing on prevention rather than treatment. Your Leverett House CHI Representatives, Cathy Cheng ~R07 (cheng@fas; 4 years with CHI), Julia Rotow ~R07 (rotow@fas; 2 years with CHI), Eva Liggett (eliggett@fas; 2 years with CHI), Allie Rosene-Mirvis (rrosene@fas; 1 year with CHI) are experienced in promoting individual lifestyle choices and behaviors that prevent illness and lead to optimal health. Existing for the students, CHI Reps use proactive, holistic approaches which encompass the physical, social, and environmental dimensions of health. Leverett CHI Reps organize themed, House-wide study breaks to reduce stress among fellow Leverites, restock the House with complimentary contraceptives from UHS, and plan numerous campus-wide events including our annual Thrive event that draws hundreds of students each year. The CHI will continually evaluate and evolve with the needs and concerns of the students, as well as evaluate program success, but our roles include:+
