Health Servie
During the course of the year
approximately 95 per cent of the stu-
dents enrolled in the University make
use of Health Service.
In a typical year, 1939-40, somet
9,965 students used the Service with
a total of 120,000 calls being made
during the school year. The daily
average is about 577 visits.
The most numerous of the com-
plaints are from upper respiratory
infections, the common nose cold and
influenza, with a grand total of 6,831
Another ailment that keeps the
Health Service staff busy is ring
worm, commonly called "athletes
foot," with about 1,746 cases.
Student uroblem of major personal
importance is curing pimples which
caused 1200 to appnal to Health Ser-
vice for aid. General injuries such
as bruises and blisters accounted for
880 patients.
Other troubles were appendicitis
with 133 cases, bonze fractures for 167
students, 180 boils, 673 acute local in-
fections, 650 gastrointestinal infec-
tions, 33 brain concussions, and 182
cases of ac ute eye isea.
Only 25 cases of gonorrhea were
reported, and 4 cases of syphilis
were treated,
Although no Health Service pa-
tient died in that year, five students
lost their lives from accidents or other
causes between the opening of school
in September and commencement.
Health Service will remain open
straight through to the end of Sum-
mer Session.
