Health Education Visit

During a Health Education Visit (HEV), a student meets one-on-one with a health educator to discuss health questions and how to access health resources. Conversations are solution-oriented and are meant to connect students with information and resources to make informed decisions regarding a broad range of health-related topics.  

HEVs are confidential and HIPAA-compliant. All sessions are offered virtually, unless otherwise requested. 

Examples of topics include, but are not limited to:  

  • Strategies and resources for stress coping 
  • Strategies for healthy sleep hygiene and quality 
  • Strategies to improve time management 
  • Communication strategies to support a friend 
  • Concerns regarding a friend’s alcohol or other drug use 
  • Finding reputable resources to better understand a new medical diagnosis 
  • Understanding the range of birth control and safer sex options 


HEVs are available to any currently enrolled Columbia University student at the Morningside/Manhattanville campuses.
