NCCU Opens Holistic Health and Wellness Clinic (71 hits)

Tours of North Carolina Central University College of Behavioral and Social Sciences’ Behavioral Health and Wellness Clinic took place on Friday, Sept. 28, giving visitors a first look at the facility as well as free over-the-counter medicine from MedAssist.

“We are excited to provide this clinic to serve the health needs of our university community as well as our surrounding neighbors,” said Public Health Education Professor Seronda Robinson, who developed the clinic along with psychology Professor Sherry Eaton and other campus faculty and staff. “It is our hope that it will become an integral part of the health care landscape in Durham and serve as a resource center for health and wellness education and information.

The opening celebration included free health screenings as well as free over-the-counter medicines, such as cold and cough medicine, Band-Aids, allergy medications and vitamins.

The clinic, which is open to the public as well as the faculty, staff and students, was created by the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences to provide clients with affordable physical health care and mental health care services. Clients may receive physical health screenings, dietary assessments, psychological and educational assessments, fitness assessment and training, weight management consultation, health education seminars, CPR certification classes and DWI courses.

"It's a great opportunty for students, as well," said Jessica Miller, a graduate student in psychology. "We can get our practicum experience without leaving campus."

Students working under the supervision of licensed faculty members will assist in dietary counseling, psychological assessments and other services.
