Our International Student Insurance team is preparing to hit the road to make presentations at the 2013 NAFSA regionals this year. The topic, dates and presenters for each insurance presentation is below. We hope to see you in one of the regions across the US!
International Student Insurance:
Title: Keeping Students Healthy in the US
Description: This session introduces attendees to the US healthcare system from an international student point of view. Many students come from countries with national healthcare or otherwise from a very different system. In the US, a visit to the emergency room can easily cost ten times what a visit to a clinic would cost – but many students would have no way to know this. We will discuss ways to help orient students to US life, including what to do in an emergency, how to seek medical treatment and how to stay healthy. The session concludes with an interactive forum.
