Student Health 101
The Social Issues and Wellness Education Office currently contracts with College Health Services, LLC to provide a monthly publication to the Hartwick College community. The Student Health 101 monthly publication is intended to provide you with valuable information on topics that you are interested in learning about but may not want to ask. College Health Services, LLC has a medical advisory board consisting of licensed medical professionals who advise on issues related to your medical health and the topics we should educate you on; there is also a student advisory board that involves students like you from all over the United States. This student advisory board helps College Health Services to determine the topics for each issue, as well as providing some of the interactive components that you will find as you read your issue.

College Health Services also offers a 65-page General Health Guide that is available to you on-line. This guide offers information on a number of topics ranging from Bone & Muscle, Digestive & Abdominal, Headaches, Mononucleosis, Skin Conditions, and much more. Feel free to access the Student Health 101 General Health Guide to answer your questions.
In addition to the monthly publication, there is also a Stall Street Journal which in conjunction with the monthly e-mail tells you what you can expect in each issue. You will find the Stall Street Journal in different private locations around campus.
We also recommend the Parent Perspective, a monthly publication geared to parents of a college-age student. The Parent Perspective was designed to offer you as a parent information that will help you understand what your student may be going through during their college experience. We feel that this is also a good way to assist in opening the lines of communication by offering key talking points and common discussion topics. Want to register a new email address?

H1N1 Awareness and Prevention
Since H1N1 hit the United States, it has had a significant impact on college campuses, which can serve as a breeding ground for illnesses like the flu. Unfortunately the impact of H1N1 was more severe than we could have expected, and therefore caused us to rethink how we educate in order to prevent such outbreaks within our campus population. Please use the following documents to educate yourself on H1N1 and also on simple steps you can take to help prevent the spread of the H1N1 virus. You can also go the Center for Disease Control and Prevention website by clicking the CDC link for additional information.
