In the UK, every university could experience at least on case of meningitis amongst its student within the first term. A frightening statistic!
Meningitis Now , a website aimed at raising awareness of the disease, is holding a Student Awareness Week to enforce the signs and symptoms of meningitis. Now that Freshers Week is done and students are settling into their university routine, its very important to be vigilant to the signs. The theme for the week is ‘Look After Your Friends’, and there are lots of free resources available. There is also a helpline available, for any queries or concerns you may have
A new website – Fight for Now – has been launched which offers dedicated information and support. This website is aimed specifically at 16-25 year olds so will have information specific to students.
