Beth Palmer Stewart is a Nurse Practitioner with over 25 years of experience working with children and young adults. Through her recent work in college campus clinics, Beth realized that most college students tend to get similar illnesses and they have similar accidents. Additionally, college students are almost universally unprepared to care for themselves when they become ill or injured.
When Beth's oldest daughter left for college in 2015, Beth wanted to send her to school with a first aid kit. When she shopped in stores and searched the online market, she realized that there were no first aid kits designed for the unique needs of a college student. Furthermore, the standard kits that were available were overfilled with low cost, generic items and underfilled with the more expensive, necessary items. This is when Beth first came up with the idea of creating a first aid kit that is specifically designed for the unique needs of a college student.
Beth spent many months painstakingly researching the first aid needs of college students. She held informal discussions with college students, parents, grandparents, teachers, administrators, doctors, nurse practitioners, nurses, drug representatives, friends and family members. She compared prices of medications and miscellaneous supplies with over 70 vendors. And through all of her time and efforts, she created The College Student First Aid Kit.
Beth has created a kit that is comprehensive, organized, and affordable. With over 30 different medications, ointments, creams, drops, tools, and wound care items, Beth is confident that this kit will help college students everywhere!
