Meningitis on Campus

Know your Risk

Certain college students are at increased risk for meningococcal disease, a potentially fatal bacterial infection commonly referred to as meningitis.

In fact, freshmen living in dorms are found to have a 6-fold increased risk for this serious disease. A U.S. health advisory panel recommends that college students particularly freshmen living in dorms, learn more about meningitis and vaccination.

Learn more about this infectious disease. Find out how it’s spread. Understand the symptoms-often mistaken for the flu. Learn about a vaccine that helps to prevent meningitis.

For more information about the vaccine, contact the Pharmacy at Health Services, 315-443-5691.

It's Allergy Season!

You can barely drag yourself out of bed. Winter is gradually receding and you're painfully aware that spring is up next. Its seasonal allergies!

All of those beautiful fragrant flowers and deep green grasses that allergy-free people just love literally make you sick. Springtime is when trees and plants spread their seeds; at least the pollen that becomes seeds and that pollen wreaks havoc on your body whenever you take a breath outside.

You're hardly alone. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) estimates around 36 million people in the United States alone suffer from seasonal allergies, known also by the common name of hay fever and the more technical name allergic rhinitis.
