Blue Raider Sports Medicine
The mission of the Blue Raider Sports Medicine office is to serve as a health advocate for students, faculty and staff, with a goal to promote health education and preventive health practices, and to implement a comprehensive program of health services that benefits the well-being of all. Our office is currently located behind Phillips Residence hall. The center will maintain consistent hours of operation in order to provide students with greater accessibility to the campus medical staff. Our staff will provide CPR and First Aid Training for residence life and public safety staff and will continue to provide credentialing for the campus nurse to ensure optimum care of our students. The goal of our office is to promote the control of communicable diseases on campus and encourage good health habits among students by providing them with information for better decision making. An annual program review will be performed by the VP of Student Services to assess risk factors on campus and will provide information and the tools to help avoid risky behavior and to promote safe and healthy habits. All policies and procedures will be implemented and followed to insure compliance with current medical standards and practices.
