Chronic Health Conditions
Myth or Fact

Lack of concentration might be a consequence of a student’s chronic health condition.

Chronic health conditions are not life threatening.

Students with chronic health conditions do not face prejudice or stigmatization from others because their conditions are invisible and more manageable.

For people living with chronic illnesses, health becomes a big (and often time-consuming) priority, sometimes making it difficult to make and maintain friendships and relationships.
