The White House Healthy Campus Challenge

Featuring Healthy Cooking with Chef Robbie

The White House has asked college campuses across America to assist individuals who do not have insurance to get enrolled in one of the insurance marketplace options.

A special event open to the UD campus and surrounding community to focus on wellness, promote health during the holidays, and provide individuals with the opportunity to learn about and enroll in health insurance coverage. Health insurance coverage is an investment in your future – a down payment for a healthy and productive life.

Join us on STAR Campus and #GetCovered!

White House Healthy Campus Challenge

We are proud to announce that UD is participating in the White House’s Healthy Campus Challenge.

As you may have heard, the United States is currently in an open enrollment period for health insurance coverage on

We want to ensure that the Newark community has every opportunity to learn about and enroll in health insurance coverage.

Experts will be available from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. to meet one-on-one with individuals interested in learning about health insurance options. Those eligible will have the opportunity to enroll on the spot. In addition, we will offer free health screenings, yoga, a stress-relieving painting class, as well as a healthy cooking demonstration and healthy refreshments throughout the day and into the evening.

We encourage you to register for an activity over your lunch hour or after work, and to spread the word about insurance enrollment assistance to individuals in our community, including part-time employees, graduate students, small business owners, and others.

Let’s come together to make Newark the healthiest campus community in the United States!

Before you come in for an enrollment appointment, it may help to have this information ready:

  • Social Security numbers (SSNs) of those applying for coverage
  • Document numbers for eligible immigrants who want health coverage
  • Birth dates
  • Paystubs, W-2 forms, or other information about your family’s income
  • Policy/member numbers for any current health coverage
  • Information about any health coverage from a job that’s available to you or your family
