This page was created by staff and faculty in the Department of Health Sciences to provide more resources on financial literacy to our students and create a central location for students to access this information. Financial Literacy is the ability to understand financial skills like budgeting and investing from day-to-day expenses to long-term saving. These resources will hopefully offer students the ability to increase and gain more knowledge on the topic.
