Our office offers routine care for minor illnesses and injuries including gynecological services. We can also partner with a student’s primary provider for continuity of care for chronic conditions when appropriate. Our staff also provides consultation appointments for various health related concerns including referrals to area specialists.
Our office provides a convenient location for the continuation of your allergy management and treatment while you attend Meredith College. If you get regular allergy injections from an allergy specialist, under most circumstances you can transfer your allergy injections to the Student Health Center to ensure that your current treatment plan is continued. Your allergy treatment must be initiated at your allergist office (receive at least one injection without adverse reaction) prior to your first appointment with our office. If you are suffering from allergy symptoms but are not currently seeing an allergist, our office can provide you with a list of local allergy specialists.
The Student Health Center partners with the Wake County Health Department to offer confidential counseling and testing for HIV/STD on the second and fourth Wednesdays from 12-2 p.m. during the academic year.
Services are also available directly through the Wake County Health Department.
