I was at a luncheon yesterday that featured staff from across many departments on campus, including student health. As I talked to one of the campus physicians, she mentioned that at a previous school, they had featured an anonymous “Ask a Doctor” forum where parents could write in their questions and the physicians would answer them (of course, this forum was not meant to address individual personal treatments – more general questions about services, health issues, etc.)
Our physician was amenable to taking questions from parents – so if you have health questions you’d like answered, please email the Parent Programs office at firstname.lastname@example.org with your question, and we’ll route it to the Student Health physicians and we’ll try to get responses for you and post them on the Parents’ Page.
