Health and Counseling Center Closes for Winter Break
The Health and Counseling Center (HCC) will close for the winter break at noon on Friday, December 19th. No clinical services (i.e., medical, counseling, wellness, or acupuncture) will be available at HCC during the winter break. Resources for medical or mental health care during HCC closure can be found on our website.
Students should please arrange for the following health and counseling concerns as soon as possible, if applicable:
1. To meet with a provider regarding requests for prescription refills that will be needed through winter break.
2. Other medical concerns.
3. Return crutches and canes or other items.
4. If this is your last glorious semester at Reed, you are encouraged to ask us for a copy of your immunization record for your personal file.
HCC will reopen for clinical services on January 16th. We will be open from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm on business days during Paideia, but closed for the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.
Season's Greetings to everyone, from all the Health and Counseling Services staff.
Diversity Mission Statement
The HCC embraces the inherent value of diversity and endeavors to promote a safe environment that respects and upholds the dignity and civil rights of all persons. We acknowledge the injustice and profound impact of discrimination and marginalization of individuals and groups. We strive to promote students’ ongoing academic, personal, and multicultural growth. We welcome dialogue of varying perspectives as we continue to expand our self-awareness and understanding of how diversity influences concepts of a holistic health and wellness practice.
