Center Your Physical Well-Being

Explore the Health Services

Accommodating our students' mental and physical wellbeing is our top priority. The health center is the primary health care facility for SMC students. Our goal is to promote healthy lifestyles, illness prevention, nutrition education, and referrals to outside providers. We understand that students have a variety of health needs and we are here to help with resources, evaluation of illness, over the counter medication and prescriptions, contraceptives as well as referrals to other health services or medical specialists in the community.
