Poor Plan B Policy Is Angering Students At New Jersey's Ramapo College

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueHealthPregnant

Plan B

And anyone else who thinks the emergency contraceptives should be readily available to anyone meeting the age requirements.

Plan B, otherwise known as "the morning-after pill", is causing controversy with female students at New Jersey's Ramapo College where it is more difficult than it needs to be for them to get their hands on it.

Female students not only have to make an appointment with Health Services to get the over-the-counter contraceptive, but they have to give unnecessary details about their sex lives and even sit through a lecture about safe sex as if 18 is no longer the legal age for adulthood.

Walmart May Or May Not Become A Major Healthcare Provider

Filed under: Business BlitzHealth

Walmart is making MIGHT be making moves to become a major healthcare provider!

Sources reported that the largest retailer in the U.S. sent out a request for potential partners last month that would help the chain become "the largest provider of primary care services in the nation." According to the document from the company:

"Walmart intends to build a national, integrated, low-cost primary care healthcare platform that will provide preventative and chronic care services that are currently out of reach for millions of Americans. Walmart intends to do this in an affordable and accessible way while maintaining or improving quality outcomes. Walmart seeks partners who have a care model or capability that can help dramatically drive down the cost of care, while maintaining or improving quality on a national level."

Shoppers could have expected services including simple physicals, urine tests, and vaccinations, but now we're not so sure.

Since the story broke, Walmart is DENYING their healthcare expansion plans and have called the document that outlines their plans "overwritten and incorrect."

In a recent statement, the senior vice president & president of Walmart U.S. health & wellness said, "We are not building a national, integrated, low-cost primary care health care platform."

Hmm…guess we'll have to wait and see what Walmart has up their sleeve!

For most college kids, summer is over and they are already back in an 8' X 10' dorm room preparing to party study their little butts off this semester.

However, all that partying studying may cause a few unwanted health side effects (like drinking from the same beer pong coffee cup), which have a tendency to spread like wildfire through campus so cross your fingers that your university has good health services.

In the list every student parent has been waiting for, Princeton Review has ranked America's top ten party schools schools with the best health services! El Lay's own UCLA came in first place, but did yours make the nine other spots? Find out after the jump!
