Today is College Student Health Awareness Day

Millions of students are working overtime to become the next generation of wage earners.  But in the process, unfortunately, all too many let their health slip down the priority list.  And when they do, a vicious cycle ensues where grades start going down, forcing a student to further turn to less healthy behaviors such as getting less sleep, eating the wrong foods for energy, or engage in risky behavior.

College Student Health Awareness Day hopes to highlight the multiple health issues incurred by many our students.  These include:

  • Depression, stress and anxiety
  • Frequent colds, illness
  • Poor flu vaccination rates
  • Risky sexual behavior
  • Sexual Assault
  • Poor eating, sleeping and exercise habits
  • Poor study habits
  • Excessive alcohol use
  • Drug use

and more.
