Student Wellness

The health and well-being of our students is of paramount importance to the College. Students are encouraged to engage in healthy behaviors including participation in programs sponsored by the Student Health Services Team. Student Health Services conducts periodic focus groups and assessment surveys to ensure we are meeting the needs of our students and focuses programming on stress management, nutrition, and exercise. The Center for Learning Excellence hosts programs focused on depression, suicide prevention, study skills and time management.

In addition, students who do enroll in Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine Health Insurance Plan have access to Blue Health Solutions, which is a program that helps the insured manage their overall health and wellness. Specifically, it includes preventive health education, early identification of future health problems, wellness and lifestyle management tools, care coordination and health management for chronic conditions.

Finally, all Geisinger Commonwealth students are encouraged to join a local gym. The Office of Student Affairs has coordinated discounted gym memberships for students in each region. Check Geisinger Commonwealth’s Human Resources Health & Wellness page for information too.
