Welcome Fall Semester 2012!

Asia (Medical Assistant) and Sandy (Secretary) are always happy to help students.
Welcome to the Fall Semester at Salt Lake Community College!
Whether this is your very first semester at Salt Lake Community College or your last, I welcome you on campus and invite you to use our services here in the Health and Wellness Services department. We exist almost entirely on the contribution of your student fees, so our department is here to serve you, the student.

Medical Clinic
Here at Health and Wellness Services, we offer a full medical clinic that can meet almost all of your medical needs. (we do almost everything shy of surgery). Our Family Nurse Practitioners and Medical Assistants are professionally trained and here for you.

Counseling Services
We have a full counseling center with a Psychologist, Licensed Clinical Social Workers (LCSW) as well as a Certified Social Worker (CSW). Our counseling team is here to meet all of your mental health needs. There is nothing too big or too small to talk about. We are also pleased to house a Psychologist from the Veterans Affairs office as part of a VITAL Grant in collaboration with the Veterans Center that will specifically work with student veterans and their mental health needs.

Massage Therapy
Our massage unit tends to be one of our favorite units within our department. All students are eligible for one free 60 minute massage per semester, from Licensed Massage Therapists. Spots are limited, so sign up quickly for the Fall Semester.

Health Promotion
We also house our Health Education and Promotion department. We offer healthy lifestyle workshops, smoking cessation assistance, safe sex education, our Condom Co-Op, alcohol education and a SHAC club. (Student Health Advisory Club). If you are interested in being a part of this club, please contact our office for more details.

We have 3 different locations to serve your needs. We are located on the Taylorsville/Redwood campus, the Jordan campus and the South City campus. Please check our website for exact hours of operation for this Fall Semester.
We have purchased a new software system and will implement it this Fall Semester. We are very excited to offer online scheduling of appointments and an electronic medical record system for our clients and patients. This system will streamline our operations and allow us to provide additional services to you, the student.
If you ever have a question about our services, or need additional information, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to seeing you on campus this semester.

I wish you a successful semester!
Lorri Castro-Zenoni, Director of Health and Wellness Services
