SHAC was a big hit at the ACHA Conference!
Back at the end of May, SHAC stunned attendees of the American College Health Association conference which was held in Phoenix Arizona. Holly Nevarez attended this conference in order to show what a student run organization can do to better the operations of campus health centers throughout the country.
Holly is pictured below talking to Kevin and Kyle, two SHAC officers from the University of Texas, Austin.

Student Health Advisory Council survey results are in!!
After exploring Mandatory/Hard waiver insurance for students, the campus voice was heard. Students are opposed to the idea. As a result, this policy has not been enacted. Student Health Service, in partnership with SHAC, is now exploring better market strategies for the Domestic Student Health Insurance Plan. This is an insurance plan created for and marketed to students that is low cost and can be paid for with financial aid awards.
