Wellness Resources
The Ashe Center provides health and wellness resources through a variety of pathways—health teaching with your Primary Care Provider (PCP) when you come in for a visit or speak with them via secure message, partnering with other Student Affairs departments and student organizations to host workshops in our conference room, or co-sponsoring health-related events and initiatives—are just a few examples. You’ll also see us out & about providing outreach at various locations across campus or our popular flu shot fairs. We also work in partnership with the Student Health Advisory Committee (SHAC) to ensure the services we offer remain accessible, affordable, and high-quality.
Our virtual health & wellness resources include:
Ashe Center Facebook and Twitter Pages. Become a fan of The Ashe Center Facebook page and follow us on Twitter (encourage your parent/families to do so also!) to be the first to hear about Ashe Center special events, changes to procedures, and important reminders such as UC SHIP waiver/open enrollment periods & flu shot fair locations; plus, get Wednesday Wellness tips and learn fun facts about The Ashe Center services on Fun-Fact-Fridays.
