"When health is absent; wisdom cannot reveal itself, art cannot manifest, strength cannot fight, wealth becomes useless and intelligence cannot be applied." - Herophilus of Chaledon, a Greek Physician to Alexander the Great (335-280 B.C.).
Welcome to your Student Health Center! I hope that during your term here at Fresno State, you can benefit from all the services we offer and more. You can learn to be healthy not only by coming to your Student Health Center but also through our website and our outreach efforts. From time to time, we will try to reach you on campus and remind you to make healthy choices alongside your busy student life.
Surveys indicate that health influences academic performance. Studies also demonstrate a significant connection between academic performance and nutrition, physical activity, alcohol use, and violence. Students who develop a healthy lifestyle in an environment that supports healthy choices will likely have the best academic outcomes.
Therefore, join me in learning more about how to live a healthy lifestyle! Browse through our website and watch for our health awareness campaigns. We are committed to sharing with you valuable information on how you can be successful in your academic goals and reap the benefits of your success for a very long time.
