On Tuesday, the 22nd I went to the Soho NHS Walk-In Clinic of London and was able to experience the difference between the US healthcare and that of London first-hand.

First, let me note that Soho is a fantastic part of the city; my favorite part thus far.

As I was sitting in my apartment, cooped up during the crazy snowstorm we had this weekend here in Durham and I started thinking about how I can get a workout without having to trek across campus to the gym. I also did not have the tools to ski or snowshoe, so how could I exercise at all?

Whatever the reason may be for people to start a workout regiment, we all have one thing in common when being at the gym; we all want to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

It’s the final stretch—seasonal jobs and internships are lined up, summer courses are registered for, perhaps a road trip is planned… Summer is right around the corner, and there’s just one maybe-not-so-little thing standing in your way: final papers, exams, and projects to complete. You’ve worked so hard all semester and this is it! It is apparent that everyone on campus is in the same boat, as the library is packed with so many students, it can be hard to find a seat.

Government Reduces Antibiotic Use in Farm Animals

Thursday, March 29, 2012

Thursday, March 29, 2012

Usually when I think of Health Services on campus I think of the place I would go if I’m feeling sick and need medical care or a prescription.  However, after visiting the UNH Health Services website I realized how many other helpful programs and services they provide for the UNH community.  One service they provide is massage therapy.
