Memphis Healthy U
The University of Memphis promotes healthy living through a healthy environment for its students, faculty, staff, and visitors.
The Memphis Healthy U initiative is designed to encourage students, employees, and visitors to eat healthier, move more, and become tobacco free.
We offer a plethora of FREE events encouraging you to move more, eat healthier, and be tobacco free through our Midday Moves program, weekly nutrition seminars, Tiger Bike Share, and other initiatives.
