NEW STUDENT HEALTH CENTER ON ITS WAY– Free activities and basic services are being made available for Monarchs during build.
By Kyla Hulett, Copy Editor
With the fall semester in full swing and many changes happening on campus, there are still health services available to students, faculty, and staff. For now, there are delegated offices for different services but there is not a building as a whole that is being used to service the mental and physical health of our Monarch student body.
For all safety and medical emergencies on campus call the campus sheriff at (818) 947-2911.
The medical office is located in the North Gym, it can be reached at (818) 947-2918 Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.. The office usually operates by appointment only for basic medical needs and wellness checks.
The psychology office is located in the Campus Center building in Room 108. It is open Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.. The office can be reached at (818) 778-5708 for information or to schedule an appointment. To view its walk-in hours, visit http://lavc.edu/studenthealth/index.aspx.
During the construction of the new Student Health Center, the LAVC Student Health Center and the Kinesiology Departments are hosting a series of weekly wellness activities over the next few months for students and faculty to attend. They’re called Wellness and Fitness Happy Hour and arebeing held from 9/15-11/18. People have the opportunity to attend nine free sessions of their choosing on the calendar of activities. The calendar for the dates and locations on campus is at http://lavc.edu/studenthealth/library/images/Happyhourflyer2.aspx
The brand new Student Health Center is scheduled to be completed in the spring of 2016. The building’s sole purpose will be to provide a place students can come for basic health and if someone is in need of psychological help, those offices will be housed there as well.
