Health Services offers a wide range of LGBTQ services, from appropriate contraceptives to sharps disposal bins for those using injectable hormones.
Our staff is Safe Zone trained. We are committed to ensuring health equity and improving the health of LGBTQ individuals, while providing a safe, welcoming, and supportive environment for all students.
The following is a list of services provided:
- Pap smears
- STI testing – includes HIV and Hepatitis C testing
- Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) for HIV prevention
- Contraceptive management
- Safe sex information
- Blood drawing
- Training on how to safely use injectable hormones
- Provide and dispose of sharps containers.
At Health Services, we serve all students, including those who identify as transgender and/or gender non-conforming, and/or intersex. We recognize that transgender students are sometimes hesitant to access health care, so we work hard to create and maintain a space where students can ask questions, get answers, and receive compassionate health care in a supportive environment.
Our providers can refer students to specialists knowledgeable in gender transition. We, along with our Counseling Center colleagues, believe it is important to provide ongoing support and primary care services with respect and knowledge of the medical and emotional issues unique to transitioning.
