Student Health Services


How to remove a tick.
Care at the Bard College Student Health Service is based on a holistic approach to treating students. Our goal is to promote optimum physical, emotional, intellectual, and social well being through education, preventative and primary care.

We believe that health care is a partnership between
the student and the health care provider.

All students are eligible to be seen at Health Service, regardless of their insurance coverage.
LGBTQK friendly.
 

SMOKING CESSATION

There are many resources available to assist with your decision to stop smoking. We offer nicotine replacement products and counseling at Health Service. Or you can get advice and free nicotine replacement products from New York State here.
Also check out the Quit Smoking Community or join their Facebook group for online support.

 ANNOUNCEMENTS

Welcome to the incoming freshmen. Health Service is here to support your health and wellbeing during your tenure at Bard. We can help with most routine health issues. If you are unwell or have health concerns please call to schedule an appointment with one of our Nurse Practitioners.

SOLAR ECLIPSE
Monday 8/21, we should be able to see a partial solar eclipse between roughly 1:15 p.m. and 3:50 p.m. The maximum eclipse comes at approximately 2:30 p.m., when the moon covers about 75 percent of the sun. It won't get dark. The bottom line is, do NOT look at the eclipse without proper eyewear. The damage to your eyes, called solar retinopathy, can be significant and you will not be aware of it for several hours when all of a sudden you can no longer see. Please check the NASA website for more information. 

Ticks and Lyme disease
It is getting to be that time of year again. The ticks are out and will be as long as temperatures are >34'F. Please be aware! 

Why do you get sick when you are tired?

PLEASE NOTE: FENTANYL DEATHS
