As a HealthPAL, you will obtain a thorough understanding of HUHS, and build the skills necessary to help other students access and manage their healthcare. HealthPALs are trained in CPR and First-Aid, as well as prepared to administer over-the-counter medications within your House or Dorm at Harvard.

Why do we need HealthPALs?

Harvard University Health Services (HUHS) offers its students a wide range of services and programs. However, at times it may feel difficult navigating and fully understanding the diversity of services available. For this reason, HealthPALs aims to bridge the gap between our student body and HUHS to continue promoting a healthier community for all students and faculty.
