For students who are 18 and over, we must have the student's written consent each and every illness or incident which specifies who we may release information to. This is in compliance with HIPAA laws.
Please do! Either speak to any of the staff about your suggestions or
concerns, or if you prefer, we have a patient survey form that allows
you to write down your concerns and/or suggestions anonymously. These
are available on various survey days or just ask for one. We encourage
students to let us know what they would like provided by Health
Services. Your feedback helps us to improve, and is valued input.

Yes, allergy serum and allergists’ instructions must be brought to the Health Center by the student.

It is the responsibility of the student to keep track of their injection schedules and come for injections.
Health services will provide health care at no charge to the patient or insurance. If the student needs a local referral, we will assist them in getting any referral number necessary. Be sure your child knows the phone number they need to call in order to get this out-of-area referral number.
