(Salisbury, Md) -Salisbury University Student Health Services recently received reaccreditation from the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, Inc. (AAAHC).

AAAHC-accredited organizations meet national standards in areas including quality health care and patient safety and privacy.
