Health Issues Affecting Academic Performance of NortheastState Students

Student Health Services is actively engaged in addressing the health concerns of Northeast State students through clinical services and disease prevention and health promotion programming. Underlying these service activities is the collection of information on the health problems, behaviors, and perceptions of students. Two recent surveys shed light on key health concerns impacting our students' success.
