During a Health Education Visit (HEV), a student will meet 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.
