Welcome to the Health Center

Our dedicated team of nurse practitioners is available throughout the academic year to help full-time students navigate all of their health care needs. We diagnose and treat many common health conditions and injuries, perform lab testing, write prescriptions and support medication delivery, and connect students with specialty care when indicated. Health Center clinicians offer preventive routine care and health education and are committed to helping students become smart and safe consumers of health care.
