Announcements

Resources for medical and mental health care in Portland can be found on this website.

Zika Virus

The HCC is following the development of the spread of Zika virus. The CDC has issued a health alert and a travel advisory for travel to the affected areas.

The illness is usually mild with symptoms lasting from several days to a week. Severe disease requiring hospitalization is uncommon.

Researchers are studying the possible link between Zika virus infection and microcephaly. For that reason, pregnant women are advised to postpone travel to the affected areas at this time.

For more information about the Zika virus visit the CDC’s website. For information about the Zika virus in Oregon, visit the Oregon Health Authority.

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.
