|Free women's health consultations for students available|
Free and confidential Women’s Health Consultations for students will be available at Student Health Services, McCannel Hall, Tuesday and Wednesday, Nov. 18 and 19. The free consultation includes height, weight, BMI, and blood pressure checks, along with gonorrhea, chlamydia, and HIV screenings, mental health screenings, and discussion of health risks and preventative screening recommendations. Pap tests and pelvic exams are not included in this consultation, but they can be scheduled at a later time. This is a great opportunity for students to ask questions and address health concerns in a safe and welcoming environment.
Gardasil vaccinations for HPV and cervical cancer are also available to female students who are 26 years of age or younger. With or without health insurance, Student Health has women covered. Students can check with their insurance provider because many policies pay for this important vaccine. If their insurance does not cover it, Gardasil is only $13.90 per shot. Students save over $300 on the series. Space is limited. Make an appointment by Friday, Nov. 14, at Student Health Services, 777-2605, or by e-mail email@example.com.
