Welcome to Student Health Service


The University of Pennsylvania has pledged to be a healthier campus! Penn signed a memorandum of understanding with the Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA), which works with the private sector and PHA honorary chair First Lady Michelle Obama, to make healthier choices easier. Penn becomes one of only 38 Universities, and the only Ivy, across the country to have committed to expand healthier options across their campuses. Read more here!
