Université PSL: PSL Student healthcare services earn recognition among the campus initiatives for its commitment to social & environmental responsibility

The “Prize for the Common Good” (« Prix pour le mieux commun » ) was initiated jointly by MAIF and FNCAS (Fédération Nationale de Conseil en Action Sociale) in order to highlight the social & environmental responsibility initiatives of the year carried out by a higher education and/or research institution.

PSL’s student healthcare services are the first initiative that received this prize, associated with a €10,000 endowment.

In a joint press release, the FNCAS and MAIF stated: “PSL’s ‘student healthcare services’ aims to offer all its students access to both physical and mental health, on the fields of prevention and daily support, and fulfill the task in a personalized, accessible, unlimited and free approach.”

Florence Benoit-Moreau, PSL’s Vice President for Student Life and Social Responsibility, said: “This award makes us very proud. It rewards the efforts initiated by an entire team since September 2020 to develop three complementary angles: a preventive medicine center, a prevention and psychological guidance center, and a teleconsultation service for general practitioners and specialists, free of charge and avilable 7 days a week, operated by the Qare platform. Our challenge now is to keep reaching out out to students through events and workshops and make health prevention a daily routine.”

PSL also conveys its congratulations to the University of Aix-Marseille, which won the jury’s “coup de coeur” award for its “student commitment bonus”.
