Encourage your child to use campus health resources

(HealthDayNews) -- Is your college-age child's lackadaisical approach to health care giving you sleepless nights?

Try instilling good health and wellness practices with these tips from the University of Wisconsin, Eau Claire.

  • Encourage your child to make use of campus health resources.
  • Discuss details of his health insurance coverage, so your child can make informed decisions when seeking medical advice or treatment.

  • Send a self-care package of medications and health supplies, including:
    • Antacid.
    • Antibacterial cream.
    • Antidiarrheal medication.
    • Anti-inflammatory cream.
    • Cough medicine.
    • Wound disinfectant.
    • Fever, headache, and muscular pain medications.
