The Health Center by the Numbers
Although many Kenyon students have less than pleasant things to say about our beloved Health Center, Health Center Director Kim Cullers has glowing things to say about Kenyon students. She is particularly impressed by students who arrive at the Health Center seemingly knowing exactly what their ailments signify. Apparently, eight out of 10 students who visit the Health Center go only for confirmation and medication. Maybe Web M.D. should be getting a cut of our tuition bill?
More Health Center numbers after the jump.
The five most common reasons Cullers mentioned for trips to the Health Center:
- Sore throat* (apparently, generally mono or strep, but sometimes a minor virus)
- Sinus infections
- Krud cough*
- Questions! Education! Kenyon students are always zealous for more knowledge!
- Free condoms
- Free hand sanitizer
- Once, an anxious parent whose child had contracted H1N1 called for all contaminated Kenyon students to be helicoptered from Gambier to Ohio State for treatment.
- Whoops, the rest would probably break patient confidentiality to share. Post amusing health anecdotes in the comments below! Also acceptable: weird health complaints.
