Getting sick when you're away at college doesn't have to be a frightening experience for you or a big worry for your parents. The Cohen Student Health Center is located on college property on Briggs Avenue next door to the Bookstore. It is staffed by doctors and registered nurses. The Student Health Center provides primary care for ordinary illnesses and emergencies. Available services include; primary care, blood pressure screening, diet counseling, flu vaccinations (in season), TB testing for student placements, skin care counseling, and HIV testing and counseling. Health education pamphlets and referrals are also provided.
The services of the Health Center are free of charge and available to all registered students who have completed health forms on file in the Health Center office.
The mission of the Cohen Student Health Center is to enhance the academic success of our students by providing high quality, accessible health care in a non-judgmental atmosphere that values diversity and respects individuality.
We address each student encounter as an opportunity to empower students to make informed decisions about health related concerns, prevention and risk reduction to promote life-long choices. The Center upholds the confidentiality of the individual student in a manner respectful of privacy and consistent with professional ethics and community laws. We collaborate with faculty, administration, students and others on initiatives and events that work toward our collective goal of maintaining a safe and healthy campus.
