Your Health @ Booth: Introducing a New Column

By Priyanka Karandikar ‘16

ChiBus is launching a new Lifestyle column called ‘Your Health @ Booth’ to answer your questions regarding student health, counseling and wellness services, and insurance at the University of Chicago. We will answer one question (anonymously) each week. The university staff members who serve on the Student Health Advisory Board and are qualified to provide answers to these questions will be doing so.

The Student Health Advisory Board (SHAB) is comprised of select graduate and undergraduate students, campus partners, an alumnus of the University, and Student Health and Counseling Services (SHCS) representatives. The purpose of the board is to work collaboratively on issues concerning university student health, counseling, wellness, and insurance. During this academic year, SHAB will focus on patient feedback, communication, and education.  Students lead the work on each focus area within a subcommittee format.  Subcommittees work outside of the board meetings. Priyanka Karandikar ’16 is the 2015-2016 Booth student-representative on the board.
