Student Health Services welcomes your interest and contact. We also value your privacy. Please consider the following information prior to sending e-mail:
E-mail is not an appropriate medium for questions regarding individual, private, personal health. It is most appropriate for getting general information regarding services, resources or other campus information. We cannot guarantee that the contents of an e-mail message will remain confidential. While we will do our best to keep communication private, e-mail usage can be monitored and others may read the content of your personal messages.
Staff access to e-mail is also limited to Student Health Services work hours. There is no expectation that SHS staff will check e-mail after hours. Also, there is no way of knowing if a specific staff member is unavailable due to illness, vacation, or other business. This means that your message may not be read immediately. E-mail should never be used for urgent communication. When time is of particular concern for you, please always call Student Health Services at 629-0220.
