Health Office

We provide quality services to students, staff, and faculty that empower individuals to be well informed and self-directed participants in their own health.

Academic goals can be reached more efficiently and with fewer obstacles when you know the value of a healthy lifestyle and have the tools necessary to stay healthy.

Services

The Health Office is a nurse directed service staffed by licensed registered nurses. We provide many services; however, we are not a clinic. We do not diagnose, and we do not have prescriptive authority. Our services include, but are not limited to:

  • Acute minor illness care
  • Acute injuries and first aid
  • Blood Pressure screenings
  • Electronic Body Compositions and Nutritional counseling
  • Referrals to community physicians
  • Immunization and Flu Clinics
  • Health & Wellness programs and education
  • Tobacco Cessation counseling

Class Excuses

Class attendance policies are determined by individual faculty members. The Health Office will only provide verification to faculty if you have been seen urgently in the Health Office for an illness or injury that required immediate medical attention. The Health Office will assist student's with a courtesy notification to faculty in the event of a hospitalization, motor vehicle accident, or a death in your immediate family. See further instructions and details under student absences.

Appointments

Students are encouraged to call ahead for appointments when requesting services such as body compositions, nutritional support, and Tobacco Cessation Counseling. However, every effort will be made to treat students on a first-come-first-serve basis. Walk-ins are welcome.

Charges

There is no charge in the Health Office for students currently enrolled at Corning Community College. All over-the-counter medications, first aid supplies, and other health related items and services are provided at no cost!

Confidentiality

When you visit the Health Office, you have the right to privacy, confidentiality, and to be treated with respect. Your medical records at Corning Community College Health Office are confidential. Health records are kept separately from academic records. We do not release information outside of Corning Community College without your written permission, except upon a court order, information necessary for public welfare/safety such as communicable disease, or as required, in our judgment, to protect you or others from immediate physical danger. We can only discuss student medical issues with parents of students 18 years of age and older with written permission and that includes the release of your vaccinations.
