Make College Life Healthier, Safer, and Smarter with the College Student First Aid Kit

I will never forget the day I began my “adult” life. At the ripe age of 18, I packed all of my worldly belongings into my car and headed off to college. I was ready to take on the world….or so I thought. I was in for a rude awakening. Less tan two weeks after leaving the home, I found myself laying in bed, sick and alone. It was my own fault; I had taken on too large of a class load and I had partied a bit too much. I had managed to wear myself down to the point of sickness. And the worst part of it all? I had no idea what to do. My medicine cabinet contained some toothpaste and a razor…not exactly what one needs when feeling ill. It was with this type of scenario in mind that the College Student First Aid Kit was created.

About the College Student First Aid Kit

The College Student First Aid Kit was created by a Nurse practitioner named Beth Palmer Stewart. After over 25 years of working with children, adolescents and young adults, Beth realized that college students tended to have similar illness and injury. Additionally, most of the college students that she encountered were woefully unprepared to deal with personal injury and illness. They didn't know what to do, and they never had needed medication and supplies stocked and ready.

With this in mind, Beth began shopping for a first aid kit. Beth's oldest was getting ready to leave for college, and she wanted to make sure her daughter was prepared. It was as Beth shopped for a first aid kit that she had an “AHA!” moment. She had realized that there were no first aid kits designed for the specific and unique needs of a college student. Making matters worse, most of the first aid kits that she found were stocked with low quality medicines and were missing critical items. It was in this moment that Beth decided to create a first aid kit specifically designed college students.

Beth spent the next few months researching and sourcing the medications and tools that would end up in the College Student First Aid Kit.  The goal was to put together a mom-approved, dorm-sized, portable medicine cabinet that contained affordable, quality medications and tools. The end result was a first aid kit that contained over 50 different medications, ointments, creams, drops, tools, and wound care items.

Giving the Gift of Health

If you have a young adult that is heading off to college, or if you are that young adult yourself, don't be like me. Don't be the 18 year old sick in a dorm bed with no supplies and no idea on what to do. Instead, consider sending your young adult off into the world carrying the College Student First Aid Kit. It truly is a product that can make those first steps into adulthood just a little bit easier.

College Student First Aid Kit Makes the Perfect Care Package

Now that school has begun, did you know that the College Student First Aid Kit makes the perfect care package? First aid supplies can be forgotten or sometimes they are the last thing that a college student wants to spend money on so sending it to your student instead of that typical candy and junk food package gives them something they really need and can use during college.
