Advocate and Advisory Services
The staff of Health Services assists members of the campus community with advocate and advisory services. We provide assistance to international students, helping them to understand immunization requirements, medical exam requirements and insurance issues. In addition, Spanish/English language translation is available from our support staff. Our staff speaks at International Orientation, as well as at the regular Orientation sessions, with the purpose of explaining our services and availability.
Our staff will also contact physicians’ offices on behalf of students, frequently to clarify which immunizations the student needs.
RN staff advocates for accessible classroom locations for students with special needs.
When students request advice on medical concerns, RN staff works closely with the student to match them with appropriate print/web resources or to provide community referrals.
