SPARK: Student Health 101 (February)

Alcorn State University faculty, staff and students:-

As a provision to the Alcorn State University community, we are providing an online subscription to Student Health 101 for our students and their families. Student Health 101 is a monthly health and wellness magazine that contains valuable information to aid students in making better decisions as well as gaining a better understanding of certain health and wellness challenges that face today’s students.

Each month, you will receive an email containing the latest issue of the family-only issues of The Student Advocate and Student Health 101 that our students will receive as well. Please take a few minutes to read the issues each month, as we believe they can be a valuable resource to you.

The February’s issue of The Student Advocate can be found online at .

You’re also invited to read the accompanying Student Health 101 issue for our students, which can be found online at .

The February issue has great articles including:

  • Preventing Suicide: What To Do When a Friend Needs Help
  • 4 Reasons To Prioritize Laughter
  • Students Get Real About Race- and How To Help Each Other
  • The Online Student: How To Connect in The Digital Classroom
