Student Health Form & Policies

The mission of Student Health Services is to support our Benedictine students in fulfilling their educational and personal goals by promoting health through a variety of services.

We strive to promote wellness through education, counseling and preventive services. Good health is best achieved through a healthy lifestyle of adequate rest, daily exercise, a balanced diet, and healthy choices.

If you have any questions, please contact Laura O'Grady.
