The resulting College Student Health Survey Reports cover seven key health topics: Health Insurance and Health Care Utilization, Mental Health, Tobacco Use, Alcohol and Other Drug Use, Personal Safety and Financial Health, Nutrition and Physical Activity, and Sexual Health. This is the most comprehensive assessment of college students ever produced in the state!
Summit attendees will receive a complementary copy of our seven volume Comprehensive Results report series outlining the aggregate results of all participating schools. Experts will discuss the meaning of the results and the impact these data have the health of college students and the state of Minnesota as a whole.
