General Information

The Health Office is staffed by a certified, registered nurse and is equipped with a variety of supplies, equipment, and over the counter medications for treatment of minor illness or injury. Vision and hearing screenings are available on an appointment basis. A local physician is consulted regularly to provide standing orders for treatment. No problem is too small, so please feel free to utilize the service.

Sexually and family planning information and referral is provided on a one-to-one basis, or in print. A student's instructors will be notified of an extended absence that is due to illness (2 days or more) per student request. Call between office hours. The nurse is available as a friendly, confidential listener. If you have a need to discuss a problem or concern, please feel free to drop by. If the nurse is busy an appointment can be arranged, usually within the hour.
