University Health Services provides medical care to students, faculty and staff of Southern Arkansas University. The facility is open Monday-Friday, 7:30 a.m.-5 p.m., and gives students the resources they need to treat immediate health care concerns. Though most services are basically free, small cash fees are charged for certain tests, said Cami Riggins, RN.
However, not all students seem to know about University Health, said Mandy Hanson, director and nurse practitioner.
“Many students tell us they didn’t know that we’re here,” she said. “They can come by any time.” All students are permitted to receive free over-the-counter medications from University Health Services.
