The WRC seeks to improve access to period products, contraceptives and resources for women’s health and reproductive care. Students, faculty and staff may obtain freebies at WRC events and during regular office hours, when the WRC reopens.
A variety of freebies include:
- Period Products: Disposable supplies (tampons and pads) and non-disposable supplies (period cups)
- Sexual Health: Condoms, lube, dental dams
Take the Menstrual Module for a FREE Menstrual Cup
Each semester, the WRC provides information about the benefits of reusable, sustainable menstrual cups and offers students the opportunity to earn a free cup if they complete a brief training module.
About the training module
The training covers the benefits of using a non-disposable menstrual cup, what cup size is appropriate for you, and common barriers and solutions to menstrual cup use. Those who successfully complete the training module will be asked identification questions (e.g. your name, WVU email) to help verify who is eligible for a free cup.
Where do I pick up my free cup?
Redeem cups at the WRC in 236 Arnold Hall on Tuesdays between 11 a.m.-5:30 p.m. from September to November 2023. The last day to pick up cups will be November 14, 2023.
Can I participate if I am a student at WVU Tech or PSC?Students from satellite campuses may email email@example.com for more information.
This module was developed in partnership between WRC Director Dr. Leslie Tower and Public Health Prevention and Intervention (SPVH 621) students, Ghada Atalla, Ethan Glad, Ryan Kirk, and Carly Williamson. The course is taught by Drs. Elizabeth Claydon and Danielle Davidov.
