I believe that good health is essential to your success. I am committed to providing immediate health education and referrals. Health services integrates all the elements of a student's life; physical, emotional, spiritual, social and intellectual. I hope that these services help you make positive choices so you can achieve your academic and personal goals.

Student Health Services offers first aid, counseling, referrals, medication, information and more. Would you like to know more...?
