We offer a variety of services to meet the health and wellness needs of students, faculty and staff.

Health Centers

Each college of DCCCD has a Health Center that promotes health, wellness and preventive care for students and staff. Registered nurses provide services including:

  • First aid for accidents, injuries and illnesses
  • Health information and brochures
  • Some over-the-counter (nonprescription) medicines such as Tylenol, aspirin and antacids
  • Referral information for community health services
  • Selected health education and screening programs
  • Confidential health counseling
  • A rest area

You don't need to be sick to come to the Health Center. Health questions and concerns are welcome.

Students with chronic health problems should visit the Health Center to discuss any special concerns with the nurse before attending classes or whenever problems arise.
