Health Center News
- Recently a lot of information about the Ebola virus outbreak in West Africa has been in the news. While it is a serious concern, it is not one that directly affects the United States at this time. If you have been in West Africa in the past 21 days and become ill, however, it is extremely important you get medical care immediately. Our Health Center staff will be asking students if they have traveled in West Africa as part of our routine evaluation.
If you have questions please consult this link to the CDC Q&A website; Feel free to call the Health Center for information if you have any questions or concerns.
- The Health Center, Dietician and Athletic Department are collaborating to offer a fitness program for students with elevated BMIs (a standardized estimate of an individual's relative body fat calculated from height and weight) called Fitness OWLS (Onward for Weight Loss Success). There is no cost to you. This program includes a personalized fitness plan and is eligible for PE credit. If you would like to enroll or learn more about this program please call the Health Center.
