The Student Health Advisory Committee was developed as a forum for communication between UMASS Chan students and Student Health.  This is an open forum where students can voice their concerns and ideas about anything related to the health of UMASS Chan students. This feedback is used to improve services for our students.  Students on the committee are appointed by the student affairs office and include students from all three schools (T.H. Chan School of Medicine, Tan Chingfen Graduate School of Nursing and Morningside Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences). They act as student representatives for their schools and bring student health concerns to the attention of SHS either at scheduled meetings or at any time throughout the year.

The Committee Members are: 

Dr. Phillip Fournier – Director of Student Health
