Student Health Advisory Board


CLICK HERE to view our February Newsletter

Founded in 2011, the STUDENT HEALTH ADVISORY BOARD (SHAB) serves as a liaison between the administration of Student Health Services (SHS) and the student population.   We are a student-run organization that collaborates with SHS to promote wellness on campus, conduct public health campaigns, communicate awareness of relevant health issues and topics, and connect the University community to resources.   Our primary goal:  constantly improve the health and wellness of all Pitt students, faculty, and staff through education and action.

Our projects include but are not limited to:

  • Producing our monthly newsletter (Pitt Health Portal) about health on Pitt’s campus
  • Creating educational posts on our Instagram page
  • Promoting the SHS annual seasonal flu vaccine service
  • Contributing to on-campus health and wellness events (e.g., Mental Health Awareness Month, Healthy U Fair)

SHAB membership is open to all full-time Pitt students who have an interest in advocating for the health and wellness of their campus community.   Meetings occur on a weekly basis during the academic year.   If you are interested in applying, please check our Instagram at the beginning of each Fall semester for information about the application.
