Paying caution to health is advisable no matter where you live or how old you are. But, one must understand that health services in the US are extremely expensive even with the student medical insurances. One must be careful while driving, walking, avoiding unsafe neighborhoods, adopting healthy eating habits, exercising consistently etc. Universities offer free or low cost flu vaccinations, every year. Students must take advantage of that. Health clinics offer free services that are related to wellness and diet. Students can improve their overall health. One would do well to remember that prevention is better than cure.
