Health Services is dedicated to providing high quality, cost effective, personal and convenient health care to our students. To avoid encumbrance on academic progress, we are here to come alongside students in times of illness, injury, and mental health needs, while we work to educate, support and encourage our students to cultivate healthy lifestyles now and into the future.
