More About the Book

The Ultimate College Student Health Handbook is a practical, humorous, medically accurate head-to-toe guide for the common injuries, illnesses, anxieties, and “risky business” choices that frequently trip up young adults. Food poisoning advice starts with “don’t puke in the sink” (that clogs dorm sinks!) rather than the annual prevalence of E.coli in hamburgers. Do you know when a sprained ankle really needs an x-ray? What to do if you might have a concussion? What if you fell asleep with your contacts in, and wake up with one stuck? What helps if you can’t sleep, or if you develop severe test anxiety? Is smoking pot any worse than drinking alcohol? What do you really need to consider about getting piercings or tattoos? Dr. Grimes answers all these questions and so many more, plus she shares her shopping list so you can make the best college first aid kit ever!

Academically, Dr. Grimes enjoyed being an associate editor for the 5-Minute Clinical Consult books, and being a clinical instructor for UMASS Medical School.

She enthusiastically educates her peers at conferences like the American Academy of Family Physicians, Pri-Med®, and Harvard Medical School, and remains a hugely popular speaker for teens, young adults and their parents. Her latest book, The ULTIMATE College Student Health Handbook: Your Guide for Everything from Hangovers to Homesickness, reveals what college students (& their parents) REALLY need to know about common anxieties, illnesses, injuries and so much more!
