Resources for Parents

  • Student Health 101–The Student Advocate : For parents, we know that things have changed in the last 20 years. Studies show that parents are far more involved with their student’s lives than ever before. At the same time, we also know that students often cite their parents as the top 1 or 2 sources of wellness information. Based on early feedback from a few customers, we created an option that allows schools to message parents on what efforts the college or university is taking to provide wellness education to students
