Zoe Camp reports:
Brenda Slade and Susan Quinby, of Student Health Services and Disability Services, respectively, paid SGA a visit. They brainstormed ideas for future projects like Well Women events (with massage chairs!) and a mentoring program pairing incoming students with Juniors and Seniors. They announced that Disability Services, in conjunction with Dining Services, plans to improve food labeling over the summer so that students with food allergies will be able to make mealtime decisions without any doubts. They also reminded students to call CU EMS Barnard Public Safety, who will then call CU EMS, rather than 911, in case of an emergency. 911 is more expensive, may not be able to reach certain locations on campus, and deprives the city of an ambulance that CU EMS can provide.
At 7:30 tonight in the Satow Room, the HPV Club will host a discussion on campus sexual health. A doctor, Columbia’s Wellness Director, and a doctoral student studying HPV will offer their medical, scientific and personal perspectives.
There will be a town hall on March 28, from 6–8 p.m. in the Diana Event Oval. Topic TBD, but they might discuss alumnae giving.
