Student Health Center Featured in Journal
Posted on April 12, 2018
The University of South Alabama Student Health Center recently was published on the cover of the Journal of American College Health, the only scholarly publication devoted entirely to college students’ health.
According to Beverly Kellen, director of operations for USA Student Health Center, the Student Health Center has evolved to become an integral part of campus life, and it is an honor to be featured on the cover.
”Historically, the Journal selects a student health center that has just moved into a new building to feature on the cover,” she said. “In the fall of 2016, President Waldrop and the USA administrative leaders supported our efforts to relocate our clinic into the heart of campus so that we are much more accessible to our student population.”
The clinic is now within walking distance from many key buildings on campus, offering primary care, sports medicine, women’s health care and psychiatric services. Kellen said during the first month of operation at the new location, utilization increased by 28 percent as compared to the same period of the previous year.
The Journal of American College Health is published bi-monthly in cooperation with the American College Health Association.
