Health and Wellness Center Director's Message

The staff of the Health and Wellness Center is committed to delivering high quality care in an atmosphere of confidentiality.  We strongly believe that achieving and maintaining high level wellness can only be reached if balanced attention is given to the mind, body, and spirit. This philosophy is demonstrated in our interactions with patients.

Our staff is comprised of experienced, caring health care professionals specializing in health promotion, preventative care, and acute care for the Penn State Behrend community.  We are dedicated to provide care in an atmosphere that accepts and supports the diversity of all individuals.

We understand the various needs of college students who live on and off campus.  This allows us to develop services to address the health care issues that our students face.  Our goal is to assist students when ill and in need of further health education in order to learn strategies directed at maintaining wellness.

We welcome students and their families to visit the Health and Wellness Center and to meet our staff.  And we invite students to meet with us to discuss their health concerns and ask questions.

On behalf of the staff of the Penn State Behrend Health and Wellness Center, I wish your experiences at our campus support your goals to achieve all that you can be.
