Free Online Ordering for Menstrual Products
In the spring of 2022, Health Promotion and Prevention Education conducted a study of SUNY Brockport students to determine how the COVID-19 pandemic had impacted their sexual and reproductive health. With almost 800 student responses, what became apparent was the inequalities experienced by students from a variety of marginalized backgrounds.
In part, the student found that almost 27% of Brockport students who menstruate experience some degree of period poverty. This increased to 33% for LGBTQIA+ students and 34% for BIPOC students.
To meet this need, Health Promotion and Prevention Education is piloting a FREE menstrual products ordering program. If you would like to order supplies for your residence hall or your department, or if you know a student in need, please complete or share the linked ordering form. Supplies will be discretely bagged, and the requesting party will be notified by text message or email come to the office in Seymour B124 to pick them up.
As always, Health Promotion is accepting donations of tampons, pads, and menstrual cups to help support our students. These can be left at Seymour B124.
