University Health Services
Princeton NJ — University Health Services offers a number of programs to educate students, faculty and staff about their health and help them stay healthy.
- This year, 5,300 students, faculty and staff received the flu immunization free of charge at FluFest, held over three days last November.
- Screenings for several other health issues were offered at FluFest. A dentist performed 200 exams to check for oral cancer. A total of 212 people were screened for sun damage and educated about the effects of sun exposure. And 75 screenings for sleep apnea were performed using a questionnaire that determines a person’s propensity to have pauses in breathing while sleeping, which can be related to heart disease and other conditions.
- In the last three years, more than 130 people have participated in smoking cessation programs at the University. Tobacco specialist Alice Kerwick will run a smoking cessation group that meets on Thursdays starting March 29. For more information, call 258-5035.
