Mom in a Bag

Many illnesses are viruses. Normally a virus is not treated with an antibiotic. To help our students through a virus the LSSU Health Center staff provides what we call a Mom in a Bag.  There is no cost for this bag. It contains information on self care measures. It also contains over the counter supplies, kleenex, hand sanitizer, chicken soup, hot apple cider, acetaminophen, Pepto Bismol, thermometer and cough drops. To obtain a Mom in a Bag – stop in the Health Center and request a bag.
