We monitor compliance with University immunization and insurance requirements. Our outreach programs enhance the health of the campus community. Campus health aides serve as an extension of student health services, to provide care for students on campus after business hours. The campus health aide role allows students who have an interest in health care to develop and use their skills under the direction of a physician to provide basic health care to their fellow Creighton students.Jesuit tradition teaches the importance of deliberative reflection. At the end of the year, students were asked to reflect on their role as a campus health aide and identify the ways in which Jesuit values were infused into their work. It was clear that they feel they receive more than they give. They were able to put Jesuit principles into action. Deliberate reflection and integration of Jesuit charisms into daily life are valuable tools for a life well lived.
