A student’s university experience and academic success is intimately associated with their overall health and wellness. As Director of Student Health Services (SHS), I am proud of the services we offer FGCU students to assist them when they are sick, to educate them on healthy lifestyle choices, and to protect them through vaccination, education and accessibility. SHS is funded by a portion of student health fees allowing us to provide high quality care at a minimal cost to our patients. Our staff is committed to providing care to students in a manner that not only allows them to focus on their academic goals but also enhances their medical knowledge and thereby encourages healthy behaviors and choices. I hope that all of our students will take advantage of the services we provide.
