Student Health Advisory Committee

2018 Student Health Advisory Committee

The Student Health Advisory Committee (SHAC) acts as a liaison between Northwestern students and Health Service Administration to discuss student needs, concerns and suggestions about the health and wellness programs and services provided by NUHS. SHAC activities in the past year included:

  • Communicating awareness about Meningitis B and the vaccine to help prevent the disease
  • Exploring feasibility of developing an iOS/Android application of Health Services resources
  • Reviewing patient satisfaction and needs assessment data to better understand student perspectives on delivery of healthcare services and improve patient engagement.   

The Health Service on the Evanston Campus is currently recruiting undergraduate or graduate/professional students who wish to be considered as a member of the Student Health Advisory Committee for 2018/19.  This is an excellent opportunity to participate in efforts to improve the quality of healthcare programs and services for the Northwestern Community. We seek several students who are currently enrolled in a degree-seeking program on the Evanston Campus and  in their first or second year of their academic program. The commitment to be a committee member would involve a monthly meeting plus the time to collaborate with other student members on any projects that may result from committee discussions. If you are interested in being considered for this opportunity, please email Brian Druley at with a short description of why you would be interested in serving as a member of the Student Health Advisory Committee.

The NUHS staff who collaborate with the Student Health Advisory Committee include:
