Student Health 101

As a service to our students here at WTAMU, we are providing an online subscription to Student Health 101 for students, faculty and staff members. Student Health 101 is a monthly health and wellness magazine just for WTAMU students. Each issue contains valuable information that will help students make better decisions and can help them gain a better understanding of the health and wellness challenges that face today's students.

Each month, you can download the latest issue of Student Health 101. Please take a few minutes to read the issues each month, as we believe that they can be a valuable resource for students.

Student Health 101 issue is available online at http://readsh101.com/wtamu.html.
