Thanks to our community:

 StudentBody is a customizable branded product for universities and tailored user experiences that draws from artificial intelligence and natural language learning technologies to offer trustworthy and medically accurate, evidence-based, and relevant health information for college students. 

 

Establishing long-lasting healthy habits is challenging. College students’ behavioral patterns around diet, fitness, stress-management, sleep, drinking, and smoking, have a direct impact on degree completion, academic success, and career growth. Additionally, these behaviors have a life-long impact around social and professional networking, potential future earnings, and long-term mental and physical health, including chronic disease.

StudentBody is different because it is a “one-stop-shop” for college students tailored with high-impact health resources and intervention.
