Do you have a comprehensive picture of your students' health?

The ACHA-National College Health Assessment (NCHA) is a nationally recognized research survey that can assist you in collecting precise data on a wide range of health and wellness issues that impact your student population and affect their academic performance.

2.2 million+ students at 1,000+ colleges  and universities have already taken the survey, and 500+ schools have participated 3+ times. Will your school be next?
