Patient Advocate

The Student Health Center strives to provide its healthcare services in a caring and professional manner. We believe that good physical and mental health are important, and believe in contributing to the overall success of college students.

The patient advocate can help students obtain information and services, and when necessary advocate on behalf of students to ensure that their patient rights are protected. The patient advocate can also help students understand their personal responsibility when seeking health care.
