Health Services

Health Services comprises of two integral parts: Student Health, and Health Education & Promotion. Health Services plays an important role in supporting students by teaching them how to develop proactive approaches to maintaining positive health and well-being. This is done with the incorporation of the social determinants of health to meet student needs through educational wellness programs, engagement activities, nurse clinic consultations, vaccine programs, and referrals to support students in achieving their personal and academic goals.
