As the temperature gets colder, students are told to bundle up, but one can only wear so many layers and still fall ill to a cold or a flu that comes with the freezing weather. Luckily, the Health Center is here to help.
According its University of Lynchburg page, general visits to the health center are provided to students without additional charge. At the Health Center, registered nurses and nurse practitioners treat student health problems using by-the-book physician-supervised protocols.
Lynchburg College’s Health Center has experienced a peak year for student patients. This rise has been attributed to the record breaking flu season. The number of cases reported for the 2016-2017 school year was 49 and rose to 129 this school year.
