Live Well at Tulane

Live Well at Tulane is an initiative of Campus Health to connect students with the knowledge, skills, and resources to make choices that support their physical, mental, emotional, and social well-being. Recognizing the strong relationship between a student’s personal health and their academic success, the goal of Live Well at Tulane is to help our students achieve their full potential and to improve the overall health of the Tulane Community.
