    Student Health Services is here to meet health needs of students

    Getting a health check up now can help students who are hoping to stay healthy during the spring season.

    Student Health Services, which is located on the campus of Colorado State University-Pueblo, is open to assist students’ health needs in a variety of ways.

    Director of Student Health, Nurse Practitioner Carlotta Fendrich, said the office is open to all students and because students pay a yearly student health fee, the visit to the provider is already covered.

    “We do have a pharmacy and we try to keep our medicines as low cost as possible,” Fendrich said. “Our lowest is $5 with our highest medication being $25.”

    According to Fendrich, Student Health Services offers several services to help promote good health. In addition to acute and non-emergency visits, the office also performs preventative medical services, wound care and treatment, physical exams, immunizations and sexually transmitted disease screenings.

    “We cover everything that you would see in a regular doctor’s office,” Fendrich said.

    She said if a student wants to visit Student Health Services they could visit the Student Health Services Web site, located at http://www.colostate-pueblo.edu/SHS/, print the history and physical form and have it completed before seeing a care provider.

    Students are also encouraged to call and schedule an appointment if they want to be seen by a care provider and at that time they are able to fill out all necessary paperwork.

    “We have a huge patient population with two primary care providers for 5,000 students,” Fendrich said. “Even if the student is able to call in the day-of we will try to get the patient in.”

    Student Health Services will be open during the summer, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Friday.
