Advocate for the well-being of your fellow Jayahwks by serving on the Student Health Advisory Board (SHAB). SHAB is the link between the student body and Watkins Health Services (WHS). The student members of SHAB advise and make recommendations to WHS. They provide input in areas of program design, operation and policy. Any KU student can join and attend meetings.

Student Health Advisory Board Survey

Each fall and spring semester, SHAB utilizes the Patient Satisfaction Assessment Service (PSAS) through the American College Health Association (ACHA) to survey students about their experience at Watkins Health Services. This survey has been performed for many years and provides the WHS Leadership Team with data to utilize and improve services for students.
