This being a week that I feel a bit under the weather, I thought it’d be appropriate to cover Lewis University’s Center for Health and Counseling Services.
“Oh no! I’m feeling ill! What should I do, Monico?”
Fear not, dear reader. Lewis offers FREE health services out of Mother Theresa Hall from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM Monday through Friday. A physician also comes in from 1 PM to 3PM Monday and Thursday. They are well stocked with both basic over-the-counter and prescription medication and offer a variety of vaccines as well. They are well equipped to treat minor injuries/ illnesses and can refer you off campus for more serious cases.
“Who will be treating me?”
The staff is made up of professional physicians, nurses and a few student workers. They are all bound by law to maintain strict confidentiality.
“I’m going through a rough time, is there anyone I can talk to?”
Why yes! The counseling center is available by appointment from 9 AM to 5 PM Monday through Friday (unless it’s an emergency). They are also bound by strict confidentiality laws. In addition to one-on-one counseling, they also offer group counseling, outreach programming, and referrals to off campus resources.
“What if I’m not sick enough to need any of that?”
Fear not! The on campus convenience store stocks basic over-the-counter medications. If they don’t have what you need, there is a Walgreen’s 5 minutes away from campus.
Well there you have it, dear reader. So next time you come down with a case of the sniffles, sneezes, or heebie jeebies, rest assured that Lewis has you covered.
