College Health Tips: Podcast Episode 6

This episode of UNC Health Talk: The Podcast is for high school graduates preparing to enter college (and their parents).

Up until now, your health has largely been your parents’ responsibility. But now high school is over and it’s time for college. Even if you’re continuing your education close to home, it’s time to take your health into your own hands.

At the end of your first semester, wouldn’t it be great to feel accomplished and ready to take on the Spring Semester? Unfortunately, students who don’t take their health seriously often end up feeling physically and mentally fried.

Taking care of yourself is something you want to do well from the start.

We thought you might want a few tips, so we spoke with Ty Bristol, MD, medical director of UNC Pediatrics of Panther Creek and professor of pediatrics at the UNC School of Medicine.

He has some advice for you.

Ready for a check up before you head off to academia? If you’re in North Carolina, you can come see a UNC physician.
