[Correction appended]

When your on-board first aid kit leaves you high and dry, there are a boatload of professionals ready to answer any distress signal.

For physical injuries or illness, call Health Services at 398-6017 – they run a clinic just for students in the Brown building. You can also contact McGill First Aid at 398-5212. They’re a team of trained student volunteers who can get you ship-shape in no time.

The original print version of this article gave the wrong number for McGill Nightline. The Daily regrets the error.
