Instead they serve as skilled listeners who help clarify issues, discover students' true wishes and feelings, and deal effectively with problems.
Medical services at the Health and Wellness Center include:
- Identifying and treating common medical conditions
- Assessing the urgency of medical problems and providing the best referrals for care when necessary
- Providing preventive and health education
- Making referrals to medical specialists when necessary
